Special Business Meeting September 17th

A special business meeting will be convened by conference call on September 17th at 10:00 a.m. to vote on the proposed amendments to the bylaws.

Please review the proposed bylaw changes on the ANAS website. Changes are noted in red (with deletions to the current version being demarcated by strike-through). As per the terms of our current policies (Section 13), you are being given the required 30-day review period prior to this special business meeting.

Dial-in instructions for conference call will be forthcoming. Members who do not "join the meeting" to vote in-person will be assumed to approve the amended bylaws "as written" unless we receive email expressing dissent, recommended edits, concerns, or questions in advance of that meeting.
