The Proposed Amendment to the Constitution
Shall Article V of the CPFA Constitution be amended to include a new section as follows:
Section 5. Notwithstanding any other section of Article V, elected council members may confirm additional non-elected members to the council in accordance with provisions as specified in the By-laws.
Explanation: This amendment would allow the CPFA Executive Council (EC) to confirm representatives to the EC, granting them the same privileges as elected representatives. Changes to the By-laws that would govern this provision would require a two-thirds vote of the EC. For example, this would allow a person from a Contract Member organization to serve on the EC.
A Yes vote counted in favor of the proposed amendment.
A No vote counted in opposition to the proposed amendment.
An Abstain vote counted as neither in favor nor in opposition to the proposed amendment.
