Proposed Modification of the Organization's Bylaws

In 2007 The Chapter initiated a process to review certain sections of the 1991 Bylaws to ensure alignment in the way business was being conducted and to leverage opportunities provided by changes in strategic direction, communications (ie: the Internet), and understanding of actual operations.

The December 7, 1991 CT-TACF bylaws were reviewed and revised to reflect two major changes agreed as necessary at the Board of Director and Annual Meetings held in 2008 (see minutes of 2008 meetings on the chapter web-site) and to accomplish several goals seen as increasingly necessary to facilitate business.

The changes recommended include:

  • increase the number of Board members
  • allow flexibility in the scheduled date of the Annual Meeting
  • permit conduct of business via e-mail and other electronic means
  • add a clause which allows for amendments of the bylaws

To facilitate review, we've provided links to the documents below.

Editor's Note: These Bylaws (all below documents) have been superseded by the Bylaws with Gregg Revised Technical Modifications Adopted November 2009.

CT-TACF Director John Anderson had been tasked with review of the Bylaws in 2007 and had created drafts at that time. John was joined by Director Bill Adamsen and Director Jennifer Allcock in a series of meetings focused on a thorough review and explanation of changes to be recommended. This document is designed to provide an explanation, article by article, of why changes are recommended.

The intention is to have a set of revised Bylaws that can be voted on for adoption at the CT-TACF Annual Meeting on March 14th. We would like to have these documents in final form by thrity (30) days in advance of that date.
