To:  Maryland Federation Executive Committee, Committee Chairs, Chapter Presidents, Resolutions Committee and Chapter Secretaries
Please…  take a look at the proposed bylaws document sent out by Pat Farmer on February 15 and tell the Resolutions Committee, via Secretary Pat Farmer, what you think needs further adjustment, if anything.  What has been left out (that should be there) or put in (that isn’t necessary)?  This is also your chance to propose additional changes that you think should go in the (new) bylaws.  Please compose your exact proposals for changes to the text and submit them, in writing, to Secretary Pat Farmer by April 11.
What Happens Next?  After any written proposals for changes have been received, the Resolutions Committee will consider them and prepare recommendations to be presented at the Convention. This is all in accordance with the formal Resolution consideration process (including bylaws-related Resolutions) outlined in the current (2009) MDFed bylaws.
