Editorial Corrections to Proposed International Bylaws Amendments

Posted On Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Appreciation goes to our Hawai'i sisters who found two typos in the International Convention Guidebook, 2nd edition. Editorial changes for two proposed amendments are necessary but do not change the intent of the proposed amendments. The following corrections will be made to the 3rd edition of the Guidebook, which will be posted April 15. 


Please note the following corrections in your current copy:

    •  #2 Conforming amendment (page 49) should be Article VI rather than  IV

    •  #17 amendment (page 59) should reference page A19— 18 rather than 16 in the current International Bylaws.
