Subject: PROPOSED BYLAW CHANGE: RETIRED MEMBERSHIP
As set forth by Article VII of the WSSHE bylaws (which may
be viewed at WSSHE.org), this flash serves as advance notification of a proposed
revision to the bylaws, as follows:
Replace the existing Article II, Section 5 verbiage with
the following (new or modified text highlighted):
Section 5. Retired Members
Retired membership in the Society
shall be available to those individuals who have retired from positions which
qualify for either Full or Associate membership. Retired members may vote and
serve on committees, but may not hold office.
Section 6. Dues
The Board of Directors shall establish annual dues for Full members, Associate
members, and Retired Members of the
Society. Dues shall be payable by January 1 of each year except for Honorary
members who will not be required to pay dues. Dues will be requested Dec. 1 for
the following year.
Rationale: Currently, WSSHE bylaws do not provide a membership category which
allows retired members to continue their participation. However, retired
members are a valued part of our community, and are encouraged to participate.
This bylaw change will provide a clear mechanism for retired individuals to
continue their membership in the Society.

in Yakima, full members will have the opportunity to vote on this important
