Amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws

The outcome of the proposed Constitution and Bylaw amendment votes are as follows:

  1. Members approved the changes proposed by the Executive Committee to expand student representation via a direct nomination and election process; and
  2. Members rejected a proposed write-in campaign to change the eligibility criteria for the election of LSA Fellows.

With the approval of amendment 1, the Committee on Student Issues and Concerns (COSIAC) will soon issue a call for nominations for the student seat on the EC, to be elected by the members of the LSA via a special election that will be held off-cycle. Please see the links below for more details:
