Proposed 2018 Standing Rules Changes

The Records Management Section steering committee has proposed the following standing rules revisions, to be voted on during the 2018 election.

A summary of the changes:

  • Cleaning up outdated language ("roundtable" to section, and defunct mentions of how the transition was to take place during the last revision of the standing rules in 2015)
  • Amendment to Article V, clarifying procedures for mid-term vacancies
  • Amendment to Article VI, eliminating prescribed officer roles in favor of allowing the chair and vice-chair to appoint special officers
  • Elimination of Article VII, as the Section no longer manages a newsletter
