At its very efficient May 11-12 meeting in Chicago (that ended a half day early), the SAA Council took the following actions:
Approved formation of SAA’s 41st student chapter at Rutgers University.
Approved a change in the name of the Committee on Advocacy and Public Policy to Committee on Public Policy.
In addition, the Council:
Agreed to propose amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws to 1) allow a more flexible schedule for member referenda on issues not related to dues increases and 2) address the process for filling Council vacancies. A briefing paper on the proposed amendments will be distributed beginning in late May and discussed at the August 6 Annual Membership Meeting in Atlanta.
