The NESS By-Laws may be amended by a two-thirds electronic vote of the membership within 30 days following the Annual Meeting of the Society when it has been proposed provided that the proposed alteration has been approved by the Executive Committee and electronically circulated to the Society at least 60 days preceding the vote.

The NESS Executive Committee proposes one amendment to the Society By-Laws, which will be voted upon by electronic ballot within 30 days following the 2019 Annual Meeting.

Additions are in Bold Underline and deletions are in strikethrough.
