IACAC By-Laws Revision Proposal

Proposed Revision to Article 4, Section 1 of the By- Laws of The IACAC

Please address all comments/questions to info@iacac.com

This change will be voted on in April, 2013

     **Vote postponed; updates will be provided as soon as possible**

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The current text reads as follows:

 Article 4. Officers and Duties

Section 1. The officers of this association shall be a president, one or more vice presidents, a secretary, a treasurer, and such officers, as the board of directors shall from time to time deem necessary. The officers shall be elected at the annual business meeting of the association as follows:

The President shall be elected by a majority vote of the membership present at this meeting. All other officers will be elected by the board of directors present at the Board of directors meeting.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The By-Law Committee proposes the following subsection be added by the Board and submitted to the General Membership for a vote and approval.

Article 4, Section 1. , subsection A.1 (01/13)

This subsection provides the instructions for resolving an election tie after an annual election of the President. Prior to establishing whether the tie exists, the Standing Committee (the Committee) must take the following steps:

  1. timestamp all absentee ballots as they are being received by the Committee, both the sent in, i.e., faxed, e-mailed, or texted by courier absentee ballots received by the Committee, and handed in to the Committee absentee ballots;
  2. complete the count of all timely sent, i.e., the absentee ballots received by the Committee by 11:59 p.m. CST of the day before the Annual Business meeting’s date;
  3. complete the count of all absentee ballots handed in to the members of the Committee on the day of the election, held during the Annual Business meeting;
    1. disregard the absentee ballots that have not been timely sent and the absentee ballots that have been handed in to the Committee after the final count of the ballots even when submitted at the Annual Business meeting.

When the annual election of the President results in a tie, the elected Directors must vote to elect the President.  A simple majority (3 to 2) is sufficient to elect the President. If that vote also results in a tie, the elected Directors must toss a coin one time and resolve the tie, finalizing the annual election of the President.
