The Officers provided revisions to our Constitution. The primary goal was to review the jurisdiction section of the document and provide clarity on roles and responsibilities of elected officers.
The new constitution (hyperlink to ISCWSA site soon)
We request all WPTS ISCWSA members review it and advise by e-mail if they want to vote against it.
Non replies will be counted as votes in favor.
If we have sufficient support per the current constitution, WPTS ISCWSA will adopt this new Constitution at the March 8th Meeting in The Hague
