Annual Meeting Bylaws Modification

At the April HPNC meeting Membership voted to adopt new bylaws. During the discussion prior to the vote a number of issues with the bylaws were raised. Rather than delaying the vote, as a number of members of the audience made very clear they had joined because of the previously announced vote, the HPNC President decided to hold the vote. Prior to making this decision it was agreed that a second vote would be held at the May meeting regarding the slight changes proposed. To that end, we are sharing a modified version of the bylaws adopted at the April meeting, which reflects those changes. We will be requesting a vote on these modifications as part of the May meeting.

Below are the sections where changes have been proposed to the bylaws adopted in April. You can see a clean version of the bylaws that will be put up for a vote at the link below.
