Dear Division members,
On behalf of the SIM Leadership Committee, I would like to propose two minor changes to the SIM Constitution. To see the old constitution, please go to the link (http://tiny.cc/Constitution_2013). In accordance with our bylaws and consistent with the Academy of Management protocol, we will have a brief discussion and vote about these changes at the SIM Business Meeting on Monday, August 12, 2019 in Boston.
To see the proposed changes, please review Article 6, Section 3 on the Nominating Committee. The section is highlighted (http://tiny.cc/Change_Proposed). We propose making the Nominating Committee election process online instead of being held at the Business Meeting. The rationale is to make the process fairer and more democratic. An online process would allow for more participation among our members.
We also propose term limits for Treasurer and Webmaster. See “ARTICLE IV. DIVISION OFFICERS AND DUTIES.” The section is highlighted (http://tiny.cc/Change_Proposed). This is to ensure that more members are afforded the opportunity to get involved.
Please contact the SIM Division Chair with any questions at: email@example.com.
Thank you all for your attention.
SIM Division Chair, 2018-19
