Proposed changes to NASBA’s Bylaws are being sent to the member Boards for their consideration. The NASBA Board of Directors at their meeting on July 26 approved for exposure the changes proposed by the Bylaws Committee as presented by Bylaws Committee Chair Jim Burkes (MS).

  • Adding the Secretary of the Board as a member of the Executive Committee and the President as an ex-officio member;
  • Establishing the Executive Directors Committee as a standing committee;
  • Aligning NASBA’s Bylaws with Delaware law on indemnification, as NASBA is a Delaware corporation;

  • Reorganizing the Bylaws’ subsections.;
  • Enabling Boards’ Executive Directors to apply for appointment to all committees.

The Bylaws will be voted on at the Annual Business Meeting on October 29, 2013 in Maui, Hawaii. For Annual Meeting details, including scholarship information, please visit the Annual Meeting page on this website.
