Constitution and Bylaws
2018 was a landmark year for ASO. We bought two properties, launched an environmental education program, conducted an art show and two bird seed sales, and approved production of a documentary on the impact of lead in our environment. We couldn’t have done any of this without your support!
During this time, it became evident to the ASO Board of Directors that our existing Constitution and Bylaws, last updated 17 years ago, were no longer adequate to support our growing business endeavors. As such, in February 2019, the President appointed a Task Force to rewrite our Constitution and Bylaws to allow for an organizational infrastructure that better supports our current business needs.
The Task Force completed this work, and the Board has approved the resulting rewrite of the Constitution and Bylaws. Additionally, the membership base has voted to approve the new Constitution and Bylaws and they will take effect on July 1, 2019. The new version of these documents, along with the old/existing version, can be found below. For your convenience, there is a two-page document that summarizes the most significant changes that have been made in the new version of the documents.
