About the Staff Senate



AMENDMENTS TO THE BYLAWS

On behalf of the Staff Senate, we are asking the Tuskegee Staff to give feedback on amending the by-laws. They have not been amended since 1992. We are hoping that we will receive full participation from the staff. The deadline is May 1, 2016. This is your opportunity to have input of your ideas on policy that affects all aspects of your work environment. 

Bylaws amendments are the means to change bylaws that have been previously adopted. Bylaws may be amended by adding words at the end of a phrase, by insertion between words, by striking words and inserting different words, or by substitution. Such amendments are offered in the form of motions; require previous notice and general membership approval. Please take time to carefully review the bylaws and make changes if you find it necessary. All responses will be reviewed and taken into consideration.

Respectfully,
Chair Christine Bradshaw
