Rationale for proposed changes
Many of the changes are housekeeping. Duties and responsibilities for chapter board members and delegates are defined in position descriptions approved by the national board. Removal of the duties in chapter standing rules ensures that the chapter is in alignment with national bylaws and policies. In addition, removal of specific detail provides additional flexibility when assigning tasks to volunteers based on strengths.
