Special MSPE Membership Meeting Scheduled for March 2, 2019 at the MSPE Office to Vote on Proposed Bylaw Amendments
JEFFERSON CITY - MSPE President Michael Purol has announced a special membership meeting will be held on March 2 for the sole purpose of considering proposed by-law amendments. This is the rescheduled meeting for the one postponed in January for inclement weather.
Over the last several months, the MSPE Bylaws Committee, crafted amendments to the existing society bylaws to comply with revisions to the NSPE Bylaws in the Spring of 2018. The new membership model became effective on July 1, 2018. MSPE contractually became an integrated society at that time. Revisions in the bylaws are required to ensure consistent policy between the MSPE bylaws and the NSPE Bylaws.
Per Article XVII of the bylaws, the MSPE Board of Directors can approve amendments to "administrative" sections of the bylaws. The MSPE Bylaws require the Membership approve Amendments to sections labeled "governance". On October 12, the MSPE Board of Directors approved the "administrative" changes. During the same meeting, the Board of Directors approved holding a special membership meeting for the purpose of the membership voting on the "governance" amendments. This action satisfies the MSPE Article IV, Section 2 Bylaw requirement to call a special membership meeting.
