The NANOG Board suggests Bylaw Amendments from time to time, in order to make them better organized, more readable, and consistent with reality. In most cases the intent is to leave the meaning of the existing bylaws unchanged, with specific exceptions which will be noted in the document.
Please send any comments and suggestions to the members mailing list or to the Board.
Adjust the language to reflect current organizational status and governance terms.
Proposed ballot text:
Shall the Bylaws be amended by the following respective changes as outlined:
Amendments to this charter may be enacted by a majority vote of members during an annual or interim election. An amendment may be put on the ballot by the Board of Directors, or by a petition signed by at least 30 members, or 1% of members, whichever is greater.
Change: Replace "this charter" with “these Bylaws”
