The WisHHRA Board of Directors reviewed a set of proposed changes to the bylaws at their February 7th meeting. The primary change to the bylaws includes the elimination of regions within the governance structure, and replacing the regional directors on the board with at-large directors. The board discussed the importance of having statewide representation on the board, and would continue to encourage geographic diversity in recruiting candidates for the board.
At the same time, the change is intended to provide the board an opportunity to to also recruit for knowledge, skills, and abilities - in addition to geographic representation. A variety of other changes to the bylaws are also suggested, which are primarily editorial. A red-line version of the bylaws are posted here, and will be presented to the membership for approval at the annual meeting. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments on the proposed bylaws changes.
