By Laws Ammendments

At our May meeting the By Laws Committee Chairman presented a proposed amendment which would strike the requirement that Directors can only serve two full terms on the Board, where they would then have to move up to an Officer’s position or move off the Board. After much discussion amongst the members present, a vote was taken after a motion was made and seconded, to adopt the proposal. the motion did not carry and a second motion was made and seconded to reject the proposed amendment. The By Laws continue to contain the requirement that a Director can only serve for two full 3 year terms.


Let any Board member know if you are interested in serving on one of BPMIA’s committees. See the available committees on the committees page. 

Also let us know if there are topics of discussion, or concerns you would like presented at a regular Association meeting. 

To all UCC instructors; make a BPMIA regular meeting a field trip/class for your students. They can network with colleagues and get their names out there for possible future employment and hopefully join our ranks to make our association membership strong. Hand outs should include a membership application.

To all members: Help us get the word out to the world by forwarding to us, the email addresses of your friends and associates who are in related professions, and who might be interested to in joining our Association. See the BPMIA contacts page for contact information.
