Every five to ten years, it is common practice for our chapter to make updates to the ATD-LA bylaws in order to better reflect the practices and procedures necessary to keep the chapter running smoothly and serve our membership. The bylaws were last updated in April 2015 and are once again undergoing review.
At the July ATD-LA Board of Directors meeting, the board voted to approve updates to the bylaws. These proposed changes will be presented at the August 13 chapter meeting and all current ATD-LA members in attendance will be invited to vote on their approval.
Proposed changes to the bylaws include:
- Updating board member positions and titles, including the addition of Director of Workshops, Director of Webinars, and Director of Special Interest Groups positions.
- Modifying the timing of key annual meetings to better accommodate the chapter calendar.
- Adopting processes and procedures to better allow us to function in a more virtual world, necessitated in many ways by the Covid-19 crisis.
- Aligning the bylaws with the current official name of the ATD-Global organization (changing from ATD National to ATD Global).
All proposed changes will be made available at the August 13 chapter meeting. In the meantime, if members have questions or comments on anything related to the bylaws updates, they are welcome to contact ATD-LA secretary, Annie Liao at firstname.lastname@example.org.
