March 18, 2022, 7:04AMANS News

The 2022 ANS election ballot, which was sent to ANS members via email on February 22, includes several proposed amendments to the Society’s bylaws and rules.

Following the adoption of ANS Change Plan 2020, the Bylaws and Rules Committee took on the task of reviewing each section of the Society’s bylaws and rules to ensure compliance with the plan.

A working group of the Bylaws and Rules Committee, composed of Don Lorentz, Melissa Hunter, Peter Caracappa, and Hans Gougar, worked with the chairs of the ANS committees and with ANS staff to review the bylaws and revise them to meet the intent of the Change Plan. Gougar presented the proposed amendments to the Board of Directors at the 2021 ANS Winter Meeting, and the Board approved the proposed changes to be voted on by the wider membership in January 2022.
