Happy start to 2019, MPSEOC Membership!
On behalf of the MPSEOC Board of Directors, we wish you a very happy start to the new year, and we look forward to teaming with you to help students and education in the year ahead.
As we begin a new year, the MPSEOC Board wanted to keep you updated with our progress in updating our internal protocols and structure. With MPSEOC growing immensely over the last several years, it was time to do a full internal audit of our policies and bylaws to make sure we are current and in accordance with current legal standards as an organization. As we mentioned at the 2018 MPSEOC Summer Conference, we contracted with an attorney who specializes in nonprofits to accomplish this goal. From this work, our attorney made several suggested changes to our bylaws to bring them current with Montana and national nonprofit code. She also was able to team with us to make sure that our language and functions are current and in alignment with our bylaws.
Therefore, we are excited to share with you the updated version of our MPSEOC Bylaws that she has suggested. We want to make sure we allow an opportunity for our membership to share any questions, ideas, and thoughts before the Board takes next steps to finalize this process. There are several updates, and the areas that the MPSEOC Membership will need to officially vote on are highlighted in RED. Please take a look at the attached bylaw updates and let us know if you have any questions, ideas, and/or thoughts before end of day Friday, February 1, 2019.
