The Annual Member Meeting of the ACPE, Inc. will be held Friday, April 8, 2011 at 11: 00 am at the Sheraton Salt Lake City Hotel, Utah. Lunch will be provided for those who reserve a lunch on the ACPE Annual Conference Registration Form.
In addition to the usual reports, the following BY-LAWS changes will be voted on:
1. The recommendation to suspend Article 5, Section 5.01 of the By-laws to reduce the number of representatives to the board per region- as previously published in the January ACPE E-News has been withdrawn.
2. The Board recommends that Article 5, Section 5.01 of the By-laws be amended to provide that the President of the Foundation for CPE be an ex officio member of the ACPE Board of Representatives, with voice and vote. This creates parity with the Presidents of ACPE and FCPE on the other respective boards.
3. The Board recommends a change in the means of preparing annual budgets as presented by the Finance Committee. The recommendation is that the membership vote on the fees for the budget at the annual meeting and the proposed annual budget, but that the Board of Reps have responsibility for approving and adjusting the final annual budgets at the Fall meeting.
4. The Board of Representatives recommends that Article 6 of the By-laws be amended to delete the "Development Committee" and that the duties of that committee be under the auspices of the Foundation for CPE. (Board motion #38, Fall 2010)
