Dear Colleagues,

Further to the Association’s Notice of August 25, 2016 furnishing you with 30 days’ notice of proposed bylaw amendments, I write to confirm that the ratification vote on this proposed set of bylaw amendments will take place from September 26 to September 30 through an electronic ballot.

These proposed bylaw amendments are designed to permit the Association to fill in Fall by-elections any seat on AASUA Council not filled during the spring general elections, as well as any unfilled Director position on the Association’s Executive Committee. The amendments include provisions that enable members of the Contract Academic Staff: Teaching (CAS:T) who were elected to a seat on Council in the spring, but were not on contract in the spring or summer, to return to their seat on Council without standing for re-election in the Fall by-elections.

Please watch your email on Monday for detailed voting instructions.

Yours sincerely,

Carolyn Sale

AASUA President
