Upcoming Bylaws Vote

Our Bylaws change vote will be happening soon. As a reminder, last fall the board came up with a plan to restructure the board that more effectively represents the individual roles and how they go about their duties. In order to make the changes, the membership must vote on this by referendum. A copy of the referendum may be read may be read in its entirety here. PCRID voting members: watch your email inboxes for a note from PCRID and a link to Survey Monkey for the vote.
