Proposed Updates to the Standing Rules

The leaders of the Design Records Section are proposing updates to the Standing Rules that will be added as a section member referendum on the annual ballot this summer. Major changes to the rules include adding provisions in the case of a vacancy or receiving no nominees for leadership roles, changing a role of Student Liaison to Member-at-Large, and adding other policies that were implied but never fully documented in order to increase clarity and transparency to our membership.  

Here are links to the Existing Standing Rules and the Proposed Standing Rules.


If you have any questions for the Steering Committee regarding the proposed changes, please reach out to DRS Senior Co-Chair Alison Anderson at
