Domain News: Proposed Bylaws Amendments to Align Board Terms

is seeking public comments on proposed Bylaws amendments drafted to align the terms of all Board members to begin at the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting each year.

This requires two induction periods just months apart as well as two times per year when committee assignments and Board leadership may have to be reviewed.
