• Dissolution of elected office of Corresponding Secretary, duties assumed by 2nd Vice-President.

• Dissolution of appointments to Chaplain and Sgt. At Arms.

• Entire Executive Board (EB) acts as the Conference Committee.

• Dissolution of the Finance and Legislative Committees, duties assumed by the EB.

• The President may appoint members of the Regional Executive Committee to the EB as needed.

• Added Regional Executive Committee Chairperson as an elected office with specific duties.

• Expenditures over $500 must be approved by the Treasurer or President.

• EB completes an informal audit of the finances at least once per year. Monthly bank statements are sent to the EB for review.

• Proposed Constitution and By-Law changes are submitted to the EB.
