To PRSA Boston Members,
At our Annual Meeting in early December, these new Chapter Bylaws will be presented on the floor for ratification. Here’s why they were revamped and what will be asked of all members.
Q: Why were they changed?
A: Our chapter bylaws now follow a sanctioned PRSA bylaws template, bringing our chapter in compliance and consistent with all PRSA chapters.
Q: What content changed?
A: Pretty much most of it. These bylaws now reflect our chapter’s procedural and operational practices and have been pre-approved by the PRSA Governance Committee.
Q: Often when bylaws are updated, the edits can be shown. Yet these are clean. Why?
A: Yes, and we will be able to do this with future iterations, but the complete reformatting overhaul make such a comparison impractical.
Q: How were these bylaws developed?
A: Our chapter’s board of directors convened a small bylaws committee comprised of practitioners with ethics, leadership, nominating and governance experience. This group developed the initial draft for approval by the full board which was subsequently approved by PRSA to be presented to our chapter’s members.
