The MME board is proposing changes to our bylaws which will be voted on by the membership at our Annual Meeting and Conference at Woods Hole on Saturday April 6, 2013.
In summary, the changes to the bylaws will be:
1) Officially establish a "student" membership category in our organization.
2) Change the duties of the Past President to become the Chapter Representative to the National Marine Educators Association. In the past this job has been part of the duties for the President-Elect and President. The responsibilities of chap rep have increased and this places a large burden on the President and President -Elect.This change will also give the Past President a more active role in MME.
3) Change the duties of the President -Elect whereby the President-Elect will no longer chair the Annual Meeting and Conference and become chair of the recently formed "Conferences and Events Committee", thus expanding his/her role.
4) Officially change the Chair of the Financial Advisory Committee from Treasurer to that of the Executive Director, which is currently our practice.
