Proposed Changes in the IHPA By-Laws.....PLEASE READ!
October 11, 2018
Proposed Amendments to the By-laws of the Iowa Honey Producers Association
Though the last amendment date to the Iowa Honey Producers Association (IHPA) by-laws shows 2008, that change was simply an address change and considered a miscellaneous filing, hence there were no changes to the actual by-laws. That given, it has been since the 1990’s since the by-laws were the subject of review.
A committee was formed to review the current by-laws and recommend updates to the Executive Board. Those changes were reviewed, discussed and approved by the Executive Board on September 29. Further to a review by legal counsel, the proposed amended by-laws are now available for your review and vote at our business meeting on Friday, November 9. In compliance with Article VII –Amendments, the proposed amendments are presented herewith in writing for the members to review at least ten days before the annual meeting. All updates are shown in italics, in bold and underlined; those items to be removed are shown with a strike-through. Should you have any questions, they will be entertained during the business meeting. Thank you for your consideration.
