May 2013 Volume XLVIX Number 3

Constitution and Bylaws amendments will be one of the subject matters for the Reference Committee hearings at the Annual Session. The Reference Committee hearings will take place on Saturday, May 25, 2013, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in room Southern Hemisphere 1/2 of the Dolphin Hotel. Final action on recommendations from Reference Committees takes place at the General Assembly. The General Assembly is a meeting of Active and Life members for the purposes of conducting the business of the AAPD. It will take place on Sunday, May 26, 2013, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in Southern Hemisphere 1/2 of the Dolphin Hotel.

Your board of trustees is recommending several changes to the AAPD Constitution and Bylaws this year in the area of the governance structure of the Academy. These proposed amendments arise from the report of the Task Force on Governance, which conducted interviews and an all-member survey last year. The results of their study were presented to the board at its Winter Meeting, and are now posted, with the proposed bylaws amendments, in the Member Resources section of the AAPD website, under 2013 Annual Session Governance Materials. The proposed amendments were mailed to membership in the March 2013 issue of PDT.

We encourage you in advance of the Annual Session to contact your trustee and any of the AAPD officers, if you have any questions concerning these recommendations. Your district trustees are:

District I Man Wai Ng,

District II Shari Kohn,

District III Jeannie Beauchamp,

District IV Jim Nickman,

District V Joe Castellano,

District VI Santos Cortez,
