Proposed Bylaw Changes to be Considered by the Membership at Upcoming Membership Convention

The following Bylaws Revisions are being proposed to the ILGP membership at our upcoming convention on Saturday, February 29, 2020 in Chicago, IL.  In addition to some housekeeping or formatting edits, the intended purpose of these bylaws revisions is to change the structure of the ILGP administrative bodies to empower the Coordinating Committee as the primary decision making body of the ILGP between membership meeting.  These changes also impact the make up and duties of the Executive Committee. 

A summary and pdf of proposed Bylaws changes can be found below.
