APPAM members ratified one change to the Association bylaws in January 2017. The changes are such that the previous distinction between academics and practitioners is changed to a distinction between people working in academic settings and people working in other settings. The proposed bylaw changes were adopted in the recent vote. These changes will be referenced in the APPAM Bylaws clauses under Article IV, Policy Council, Section 5a.
All active APPAM members received an email with an electronic ballot and voting instructions. Voting began on December 15 and ended January 14, 2017.
