Consitution & By-Laws

The Board of Directors has approved revisions to SFS By-laws to make them align better with SFS practice. These include language establishing an SFS Fellows program, an Endowed Publication Fund and Journal Endowment Committee, and renaming the "Assistant to the President" position to the more accurate title of "Vice President." These proposed revisions were approved by the SFS Board of Directors and were put to a vote of the membership at the upcoming annual meeting in May 2016, as per the amendment process specified in the SFS By-laws.
