The ILEU By-Laws amendment proposed by President Don Carpenter to be voted on at the December Membership Meeting is shown below. Note that by-law changes must pass with 2/3rds vote of the members present at the meeting.
- Add a By-Law numbered “11. ” which states, “At the discretion of the Executive Board, meetings of this Union may be conducted using an Internet Meeting Service designated by the President that supports anonymous voting, visual displays identifying participants, a mechanism to see those seeking recognition to speak, the ability to display the text of pending motions, and the ability to show the results of votes. These electronic meetings of the Union shall be subject to all rules adopted by the Board, which may include reasonable limitations on, and requirements for, membership participation. Any such rule supersedes any conflicting rule for non-virtual meetings. Any vote, anonymous or otherwise, conducted through the designated Internet Meeting Service shall fulfill any requirement in the By-Laws or Constitution that a vote be conducted in writing or by ballot. Whether a meeting is in-person or virtual shall be communicated in writing to the membership at least 48 hours prior to the meeting start time.”
