Proposed Changes to the IMEA Constitution and By-Laws

At the IMEA Business Meeting, held on November 19, 2016, several changes were proposed to the IMEA Constitution and By-Laws to reflect the change in moving to a yearly conference and All-State, and to reflect the changes in the Business Manager’s duties and title. Also, due to changes in the insurance industry, the Business Manager/Executive Director no longer needs to be bonded but is covered by our Officer’s and Director’s Insurance. Please download a copy of the Proposed Changes and review it. This requires a vote of the membership. Voting is now open and will close on January 20th. Please take a moment and vote now.
