Constitution & By-laws amendments
The VSTA Executive are recommending the following amendments to the Constitution & By-Laws:
THAT the VSTA amend its Constitution and By-laws to create 3.11 which states that the seconded In-House Table Officers will be remunerated for the commensurate portion of their secondment to the VSTA Office.
[This is the current practice, but it must be in the by-laws to satisfy the Societies Act.]
THAT the VSTA establish a TTOC Standing Committee.
Members will receive an update.
