BYLAW AMENDMENT – CALL FOR COMMENTS
The FGFOA Board of Directors has approved changes to the FGFOA Bylaws. The process for a Bylaw amendment requires that the proposed changes be sent in advance to the membership for comment. The Bylaw Amendment Chairman (Immediate Past President – Diane Reichard) will write an unbiased position paper which will include all comments from the members and then the Bylaw Amendment will be voted on by the members. This vote will take place in conjunction with the online voting of the Board of Directors. A two-thirds majority vote is required for passage.
Please review the redlined Bylaws and send your written comments to Jeannie Garner, FGFOA Executive Director at email@example.com or FGFOA P.O. Box 10270, Tallahassee, Florida 32302-2270. These comments must be received by April 3, 2015.

• Award #1 – Website Transparency
• Award #2 - Process Improvement
The project should have been implemented in the last eighteen months. All current FGFOA member agencies are eligible to apply.
Winners will be announced at the Tuesday, June 16, 2015 Annual Business Luncheon, Diplomat Resort, Hollywood, Florida.
