A Special Meeting of the Rhode Island Chapter is called for July 24, 2018, 1:00pm to vote on a proposed revision to the Chapter Bylaws. Currently the bylaws require the Chapter to hold regular meetings 6 times a year (in addition to the annual meeting). The bylaws also require the Chapter’s Board of Directors to meet monthly (excluding summer). This proposal removes the regular meeting requirement for Chapter meetings. This proposal also reduces the required number of Board meetings to minimum of 6, with 3 to be in the first half of the year, and 3 to be in the second half of the year.
