Call for Member Comments: Revisions to SAA Constitution and Bylaws

December 7, 2020—The SAA Council seeks member comment on proposed revisions to the SAA Constitution and Bylaws. Each year, the second-year class of Council members review a portion of SAA’s governing documents. This year, Councilors specifically reviewed election procedures and petition logistics to better reflect current Society membership numbers.

The Council recommends three notable changes:

  1. The number of signatures required for a petition to place a member on the ballot from fifty (50) individual members to 5% of eligible voting members. (SAA Bylaws, Section 5. Election of Officers and Councilors)
  2. Rules of Business Meeting updated to provide flexibility for virtual meetings. (SAA Bylaws, Section 10. Rules of the Business Meeting, item k.)
  3. Increase the number of signatories for a proposed resolution from 1% to 5%. (SAA Constitution, Section VI. Meetings, item 2)

The proposed revisions will ultimately be put forward for an all-member referendum held in conjunction with the 2021 general election ballot.

A petition to add a member to the ballot must receive the signatures of five percent of the eligible voting members in addition to fifty (50) individual members. These numbers indicate solid growth. Undoubtedly, the signals are getting better all the time. Very fascinating material that should be frequently followed geometry dash lite

I agree with Eira as well. It would be helpful to have a definite deadline for the membership krunker count, similar to when an election petition is due.

SAA Constitution


The SAA Council proposes key changes to enhance democratic processes:

  1. Petition Signatures: Increase from 50 to 5% of eligible voters.
  2. Meeting Flexibility: Update rules for virtual meetings.
  3. Resolution Signatories: Raise from 1% to 5%.

These revisions aim to align procedures with current membership dynamics. Members' input is crucial before the 2021 referendum. Delta executor

Clarification requested on % of eligible members


Re: the proposed amendments that reference percentage of eligible members, is this eligible members at the time the petition or resolution is submitted? Where can one easily obtain this information, since presumably membership is a frequently fluctuating number?

Ditto on Eira's comment.

Ditto on Eira's comment. Perhaps a date for the membership count should be specified, particularly with an election petition where we have a specific date the petition would be due.

It would be extremely helpful to have a date for the membership count. I hope this provision will be implemented.
