Proposed Bylaws Changes

On May 12, 2020, the NACo Bylaws Committee held a meeting to review the proposed changes that had been approved by the Finance Committee, the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors in December 2019 at the Fall Board Meeting in Douglas County, Neb. These changes to the bylaws allowed for NACo to provide for the organization in the event of sudden financial need. Further changes were minor in nature, added to provide clarification with regard to credentials and virtual voting, given the shelter-in-place requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Changes were detailed via strikethrough for deletion, red for language reviewed by the Finance Committee and the Executive Committee, and approved by the Board of Directors at the Fall Board Meeting in Douglas County, Neb., December 2019, and green for language added on May 12, 2020 at the Bylaws Committee meeting.

The bylaws will be presented to the membership at the Annual Business Meeting on July 20, 2020 for consideration for adoption.

The NACo Bylaws state: “At least every four years, the president shall appoint a bylaws review committee whose responsibility is to review the bylaws and to recommend any amendments to the bylaws.”

The last time the bylaws were reviewed was in July of 2017 at the Annual Conference in Franklin County, Ohio.
