Amendments (link above)
There are still a lot more amendments to vote on, so we will send updates as we vote (each day).
Biggest thing: the name change amendment (C-1) failed, so nothing has changed with our Society name.
-the state organization name amendment (C-2) passed, which means that our state will be Louisiana and not Epsilon.
-the emblem, anthem, and jewelry verbiage (C-3, C-4, C-5) passed, which means that the language will be in the go-to guide, and not the Constitution.
-we will now "induct" and not "initiate" members, as C-6 passed.
-we will still "invite" prospective members and not have "applications," as C-7 failed.
-members will be International members, as well as state and/or chapter because C-9 passed.
-former educators can join, as C-10 passed.
-renaming the "Educators Award Fund Committee" (C-42) passed, which means it is now called the "Educators Book Award Committee."
-Communications and Publications committee had clean up of responsibilities with the passage of C-45.
-the Eunah Temple Holden Leadership Fund Committee (which partially funded speaker Benjamin Zander) has had a name simplification through the passage of C-57, and it's now called Holden Fund Committee.
