2020 ACMS By-Laws Amendment

This vote concerns the amendment of the ACMS by-laws, which were presented to the membership at the July 31, 2020 Annual Meeting.

  • 2015 (original) by-laws
  • June 29 draft of the proposed amended By-laws
  • Motion passed at Annual Meeting "waiving the requirement that amendments shall be presented to the Secretary/ Treasurer at least 30 days in advance of the Annual Meeting and by doing so that the board actions taken on July 13, and subsequent technical/legal revisions, shall be considered the properly Proposed By-Laws Amendments forwarded to the Membership for vote.”

On July 13 during our regular board meeting, the officers amended the proposed amendments, adding Associate Members (Part-Time, Administrative, Government, Teaching, or Research dues rate member physicians) giving them voting and board officer privileges. Because this amendment fell inside the 30-day window of presenting the by-laws to the Secretary before A.M., this waiver motion was required. It results in the Proposed Amended By-Laws Below.

Questions may be directed to Dr. Tom Pintar, chair of the By-Laws Amendments Special Committee or Steven Reames, director of Ada County Medical Society.

Ballots will be emailed or mailed Monday August 3 and polling will end 11:59 PM August 19. Please go to your inbox and look for the email labeled "Action Needed: ACMS By-Laws Amendment Ballot."
