Hello ATHEN Members,

Based on feedback and motions at the ATHEN Annual Meeting, I am posting the proposed changes to the ATHEN Bylaws. While some of the changes were small, there were a few changes that impacted a number of bylaws and required further review. These proposed amendments will be available via the ATHEN website and voting will open in 30 days to ATHEN members in good standing.

Please feel free to contact myself or an ATHEN Executive Council representative if you have any questions.

Take care,

Proposed Changes:
