Association Seeks Comments from Members on Proposed Amendments to Bylaws

Mary F. Platt, Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association, is seeking comments from members of the Association regarding revisions to its Bylaws:

Dear Members,

For the past 2½ years, the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Bylaws Committee, chaired by Marc Zucker, has been reviewing and considering revisions to the Association’s Bylaws. The Bylaws have not undergone substantial revision for more than a quarter century so the Committee has proposed numerous revisions. The Committee’s proposed revisions are reflected in the clean draft and draft with track changes, and summarized in part in the summary of highlighted changes.

Please review these documents and if you have any comments or suggested revisions, send them to Charles J. Klitsch, Esq. at cklitsch@philabar.org. no later than August 6. This will allow the Bylaws Committee sufficient time to consider your comments and suggested revisions, and incorporate revisions with which the Bylaws Committee agrees before the Committee presents its proposed Bylaws revisions to the Cabinet at the Cabinet’s meeting on August 21 and asks the Board of Governors to approve the Committee’s proposed revisions to the Bylaws at the Board’s meeting on August 30. All comments and revisions should be specific, with numerical reference to specific provisions of the Bylaws.

Thank you for assisting us with this project and for your dedication to our Bar Association.

Mary
