Proposed Bylaw Changes

The NANOG Board recommended changes to 34 sections of the Bylaws on the 2018 Election ballot.  NANOG contracted legal counsel to review our corporate documents and address any gaps in NANOG’s governance model.  Changes to 19 sections have legal significance including new bylaw language, but also add definitions for clarity, were developed after engaging legal counsel to address any gaps in NANOG’s governance model. Changes made include text and policy additions to address policy gaps, as well as minor language adjustments and grammatical corrections recommended by our legal team. The changes to the remaining 15 sections are grammatical corrections only. On the ballot the complete list of Bylaw changes were listed as a Yes/No vote for or against approving the changes, with a link to the document listing how the 34 sections will read if approved.
