The Constitution and Bylaws document has not been updated in over 10 years. Since the last revision, the Branch has undergone changes in the way things are carried out and committees that are needed to carry out Branch business. The Executive Committee has revised the Constitution and Bylaws document to reflect needed changes and to update voting capabilities to include voting for future changes through an online voting portal.
Congratulations and welcome to the incoming officers of the Southwestern Branch!
