PASS By-Law Changes

Over the past year, the PASS Board of Directors (BoD) has been looking at changing the by-laws.  We've had in-depth in-person discussions about how the by-laws could/should be changed.  Here is the link to the documents that I am referring to: http://www.sqlpass.org/Community/PASSBlog/entryid/300/Amendments-to-PASS-Bylaws.aspx

One of the changes that I believe addresses more perception than reality is the rule of "No more than two from a single organization".  While I personally do not believe that the BoD representatives in the past have had "designs" on controlling PASS (due mainly in part to my relationships with many of these folks that I refer to as friends - even though we compete from time to time), I believe that this is a necessary measure as often perception is reality.

Another change is the Officer Appointment process.  Essentially, before you can become an officer, you must be elected and serve at least one term. The changes also include the elimination of the Officer Nomination Committee.  This means that the BoD effectively becomes this committee and elects the officers. 

The bylaws evolve over time.  I believe this is about the 5th change that I have seen.  Please give us feedback at the link above.
