Article 8. Section 1.D. and Section 2.D. Change 10 days to 30 days.
Rationale: These two changes make all balloting consistent – 30 days to distribute ballots and 14 days to vote.

Amendment: 

STUDENT REP

MINUTES

Article 4. Section 5. Little E. Eliminate entire section.
Rationale: The recording secretary now performs this task.

Amendment: 

ELECTRONIC JOURNAL

Bylaw XIV. Eliminate entire bylaw.

Amendment: 

SELECT SWEEPS

Bylaw XII. Section 4. Little A. Eliminate select sweepstakes award.
Rationale: The awards is outdated. It was created when there were more than 200 member schools and those with limited travel budgets could not hope to win an award. But, the expansion of the Newcomer criteria protects this small group of schools.

Bylaw XII. Section 4. Little C. Replace affiliate with emerging.
Rationale: Affiliate membership no longer exists.

Amendment:

If no awards are submitted by the regional representative, then they will be given to the top school in that region in the standings that did not receive one of the top ten national sweepstakes awards.”

Bylaw 4. Section 4. Strike the following: “After all votes are cast, the number of valid ballots will be determined, and it will require a majority of that number (50% plus one) of first place votes for a choice to be elected.”

Amendment: 

ELECTIONS

Article 5. Section 4. Strike Rocky Mountain and Southern California from the list of regions elected in even numbered years.
