Proposed Amendments to Standing Rules on Summer 2021 Ballot

As discussed during last year’s section meeting, a task force with members Tamar Zeffren, David Benjamin, Mott Linn, and Brenda Burk was formed to review the current standing rules and update it to reflect current practices and overall SAA section guidelines. 

In accordance with the standing rule, the proposed amendments were reviewed by the executive director (or her designee) and the section’s Council Liaison and will now be put forward in a referendum vote by the section membership. 

The proposed changes will appear on the section’s annual election ballot in Summer 2021 for a final approval by a simple majority of the section’s membership.  The current standing rules can be found at and the proposed changes are attached to this news item.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact
