Time, Place and Notification by deleting a. and substituting new a.) is printed below, along with the intent or rationale and current amendment. Under the proposed amended bylaw, proposed changes are boldfaced. Proposed deletions are boldfaced and struck out.

The intent of the proposed bylaw amendment is to provide greater flexibility for the board of directors to schedule the one required annual business meeting at times other than at state conventions. The board may decide to host conventions every other year versus annually, based on economic and attendance factors.
