October Issue: Governance Corner & AMTA Updates

Proposed Bylaw Changes

AMTA gives all members the opportunity to voice their thoughts on proposed bylaw changes. Bylaws govern your association. Your comments are weighed by the board before any decisions are made. At its March 2011 meeting the board will consider proposed bylaw changes. Read these proposed changes and offer you comments before January 14.

Guide Your Professional Association by Voting!

Because AMTA is a member-driven organization, we rely on the support and participation of members in all aspects of the association.
