Ballot on WLA Constitution & Bylaws Amendments Out December 2
Major amendments to the WLA governing documents which eliminate 10 committees and merge the constitution and bylaws will be the subject of a membership vote, with a ballot to be issued December 2. These significant amendments include provisions for closer ties with the Wisconsin Educational Media Association (WEMA), future electronic balloting, and new rules of order. The amendments also simplify language throughout the document.

All members were sent a postcard notification of the proposed amendments. Members were also able to ask questions at the annual business meeting November 4 in Lake Geneva; no additional amendments were proposed there. For the text of the amendments and comments, frequently asked questions, and a timeline of the amendment process, please go to "Rethinking WLA's Structure."
