AMSA Bylaws Amendment Forum

  • Dates: 22 – 22 Mar, 2018

AMSA Bylaws Amendment Forum
March 22, 2018

Overview:

This is an open forum for all AMSA members to take part in a discussion of a proposed bylaw amendment which would establish the AMSA Educational Foundation Board of Trustees in the Association Bylaws.  The purpose of this bylaw amendment is to provide a stable blueprint for the governing of this foundation, and the basic mechanism for how the Board of Trustees and the Board of Directors work together in the realm of foundation matters.

AMSA created an endowment program in 1990. In 2001, the membership voted to form a foundation from the endowment funds under the care of a Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees created and developed structure and polices for stewardship and growth of the foundation. 17 years later, over $1,000,000 in gifts from over 1,000 individuals and organizations have accumulated, and the Board of Trustees is looking towards the future of the foundation on a completely different scale.

 In 2017, the AMSA Board appointed a task force to better define the roles of the Board and Trustees in the ongoing stewardship and cultivation of the foundation.  The Task Force has recommended distilling the core structural and purpose policies of the foundation into a bylaws amendment. These include responsibilities, eligibilities, and authorities that are to be delineated to the Board of Trustees.  Generally, bylaws serve as the blueprint for how the governing body of an organization will operate. The purpose of this bylaw amendment is to provide a stable blueprint for the governing of the Foundation and the basic mechanism for how Board of Trustees and Board of Directors work together in the realm of foundation matters.
