Florida DKG Fall Executive Board Meeting
September 23, 2023 Bylaws Committee Report Submitted By Pat Eckstein, Chair
During this biennium the Bylaws Committee plans to continue to review the Florida State Bylaws and Chapter Rules in order to align them with the current International Constitution and Standing Rules. We will present a workshop at each of the district meetings, and we will also review proposed amendments to be submitted at the next Florida State Organization Convention in 2025.
This past April, at the Florida State Convention, amendments to the Florida State Organization Bylaws were approved. The current 2023 Florida State Organization Bylaws and Standing Rules can be found on the Florida State DKG website under the Bylaws Committee page.
As members of the Bylaws Committee, we are committed to helping all chapters with their Chapter Rules. At each district meeting there will be a bylaws workshop. We encourage each chapter to send a representative. We have resources to help all chapters update their Chapter Rules. If you have concerns, we urge you to share your Chapter Rules with the Bylaws Committee for review and suggestions. You may send us a copy or bring a copy to your district meeting in 2024.
If you have questions or concerns regarding updating Chapter Rules or submitting amendment proposals please feel free to contact a Bylaws Committee member. If you are considering an amendment, the amendment proposal form can be found on the DKG website. Remember, we are here to help and support you in your efforts.
