Voting Ends Today on Bylaws Amendment Proposal

The ASPR Membership & Marketing (M&M) Committee holds the responsibility for ensuring all ASPR applicants meet the membership eligibility definitions established by the ASPR Bylaws.

The M&M Committee along with the ASPR Board of Directors supports the creation of two new membership categories and has further delineated other eligibility criteria. Since some of the proposed changes would impact member benefits, the amendment to the Bylaws must be approved by members with a majority vote.

Please carefully review the proposed Bylaw changes and indicate whether you approve or disapprove of the changes by casting your vote TODAY by 5PM CST. If the amendment to the Bylaws is approved by membership, it would take effect on December 1, 2011. Members would be re-categorized as appropriate upon their membership renewal date thereafter. If you have questions, please contact Jennifer Metivier, Executive Director, at

View the changes to the bylaws and cast your vote.
