During the AHS National Convention held last summer in Michigan several important changes to the AHS Bylaws were
approved, two of which affect Region Two.
It will be necessary to have a vote at the 2003 Region Two meeting on changing the Region Two bylaws to conform to
those of the American Hemerocallis Society.
BYLAWS CHANGE #1:
The article affected is ARTICLE  IV   OFFICERS  Section 3 and 4.
The changes are that the Regional Vice President will no longer appoint the chairperson of the nominating committee for
both the Director and the Regional Vice President. And there will not be a ballot published in the newsletter for electing the
Regional Vice President.  The chair of the committee to nominate a Regional Vice President will present the committee's
nominee at the annual regional meeting and open the floor for additional nominations.
The existing Region Two Bylaws read as follows:
ARTICLE  IV OFFICERS
Section 3.  ELECTION OF DIRECTOR
. Each region shall elect its own director from Society members of that Region.
Nomination shall be made by a nominating committee consisting of three members from the region. The chairman of the
committee shall be appointed by the regional vice president. The other two members shall be elected on a timely basis by a
majority vote of the regional members at the annual regional meeting. Only one of the three members can have served on
the nominating committee during the prior election of a director and under no circumstances can a member of the
nominating committee serve more than two consecutive terms. The nominating committee will take into consideration the
specific skill, if any needed by the Society to best serve the membership. The committee shall send to the membership by
insertion in the regional newsletter at least two months prior to the annual regional meeting a ballot for voting, with the
committee's nomination and with space for write in candidates. If an incumbent director is eligible to serve a second three 
year term and unless he indicates in writing his unwillingness to do so, his name must be included on the ballot. The ballot
must be signed and returned to the chairman of the nominating committee within thirty (30) days of the mailing of the
ballot. The nominating committee shall count the ballots and ascertain that all ballots are from active members as certified
by the Secretary of AHS through the mailing labels provided for the regional newsletter in which the ballot appears. The
results will be reported to the regional membership at the annual regional meeting and to the president of the Society along
with a written statement by the director elect that he is able, willing and qualified to serve as a director of the Society. If
there is an inadequate number of directors at the time of the fall meeting due to any region not electing a qualified director,
the AHS president shall appoint a director from the membership at large subject to ratification by two thirds vote of the
national AHS Board. If a director resigns during his regular term, the AHS president shall appoint, in collaboration with
regional vice president, a member from that region to fill the vacancy, subject to ratification by two thirds vote of the AHS
by mail. Any appointed member of the AHS national board serving more than one half of a regular term of three years,
shall be deemed to have served a full term.
Section 4.  ELECTION OF REGIONAL VICE PRESIDENT.
 Each region shall elect its own regional vice president
from Society members of that region. Nominations shall be made by a nominating committee of three members. The
chairman of the committee shall be appointed by the regional vice president, the other two members shall be elected on a
timely basis by a majority vote of the regional members at the annual regional meeting. Only one of the three members can
have served on the nominating committee during the prior election of a regional vice president and under no circumstances
can a member serve more than two consecutive terms. The chairman of the nominating committee shall send to the mem 
bership by insertion in the regional newsletter at least two months prior to the annual regional meeting a ballot for voting,
with the committee's nomination and with space for write in candidates. The ballot must be signed and returned to the
chairman of the nominating committee within thirty (30) days of the mailing of the ballot. The nominating committee shall
count the ballots and ascertain that all ballots are from active members as certified by the Secretary of AHS through the
mailing labels provided for the regional newsletter in which the ballot appears. The results will be reported to the regional
membership at the annual regional meeting.
