CONSTITUTION COMMITTEE REPORT
 
 

The Next Step

BY BARRY HAGGE, CHAIR

The 2002 Tucson Leadership Conference formally opened the constitutional amendment process that culminates with the delegates acting on proposed amendments at the Eleventh National Convention in St. Louis.

The postmark deadline for a proposed constitutional amendment was March 31. Proposed amendments postmarked after March 31 will be returned to the sender. Only amendments mailed to the national office or e-mailed to bhagge@vva.org  were accepted.

The National Constitution Committee will complete its review of all proposed amendments and prepare its report to the membership. The committee's report will be made available via e-mail, via the VVA web site, and snail mail within two weeks after the April meeting.

The committee also will hold open hearings at the Convention before the amendments are presented to the delegates for action. We encourage you to attend the hearing and make your opinions known.

We look forward to seeing you in St. Louis.
