Member Dialogue (Option One) on the Proposed Amendments to the IOA Bylaws & Articles of Incorporation

Member Dialogue (Option One)

All IOA members are invited to participate in one of two Member Dialogues focused on the proposed amendments to the IOA Bylaws & Articles of Incorporation.

These dialogues will provide a space for members to discuss the proposed Bylaws changes, provide input, and ask questions of the IOA Board of Directors. The meetings will include small group discussions to encourage meaningful commentary. 

The Member Dialogues are identical in format and purpose and will follow the same agenda. We will begin in a large group with the same opening remarks, then move into the small breakout groups for 40 minutes. Each breakout group will be facilitated by a board member, who will capture the notes of the discussions and share highlights with the large group when it comes back together. 

In support of constructive dialogue, the Board has enhanced the table of proposed Bylaws revisions to further clarify the rationale for the proposed changes. This table has been added to the documents already existing on the amendments webpage.

What Happens Next?

Following these two meetings, there will be another Special Board of Directors Meeting in late August to consider member input. The Board will then present members with a final set of Bylaws amendments for a vote by proxy or Special Member Meeting in September. Nominations and elections for new directors will then follow.
