Motion proposed by AMACS committee to amend AMACS statute Clause 4.1.3, which currently states:
“Only those persons who have been full members of the Association for not less than five (5) consecutive years are eligible to contest Association presidency. In the case of Committee elections, candidates would need to have been Association members for at least three (3) consecutive years at the time of their candidature.”
It is hereby proposed to delete “for at least three (3) consecutive years at the time of their candidature.” and replace it with “during the current year”
