Subject: [BOARD] ANNOUNCEMENT: Proposed USGenWeb ByLaw Amendment


On April 6, 2021, the Advisory Board received a proposal from NDGenWeb to amend a USGenWeb Bylaw. The proposed amendment seeks to strike the requirement that all local sites must provide a query area. By striking as a National requirement, individual States will be free to decide if they wish to adopt the requirement at a State level.

The proposed amendment is posted in full on the National website: http://usgenweb.org/about/proposedamendments.html

Five additional States are required to co-sponsor this amendment for inclusion on the upcoming National Election ballot. States that wish to co-sponsor this proposed amendment are instructed to notify the Advisory Board and CC usgenw...@googlegroups.com

XVI. Amendment to Bylaws
C. The proposed amendment, with the sponsor's name and date of posting, shall remain posted for a period of at least thirty (30) days prior to the annual voting period of July 1-July 31. Any proposed amendment shall require a minimum of five (5) states as co-sponsors to command that it be placed on the ballot. State projects wishing to co-sponsor the amendment shall notify the Advisory Board and make an announcement on the USGenWeb-All Mailing List.
