  1. We are an association of journalists. Our Bylaws detail how members should renew their active status, annually, by submitting proof of current published work ("clippings"). The bylaw says: ..".Submit six original clippings...from the preceding twelve months (July 1 through June 30)". A proposed change is to add the following language, not by going through the mandated bylaw change procedure, but by a simple motion: ..."and must be based on...press conferences ... occurring during the period starting January 1st prior to the qualifying fiscal year (e.g. an 18 month period) to qualify as clippings; stories based on and photographs taken during activities occurring prior to that 18-month period may not be submitted" Those objecting to this proposed motion say that you cannot make any change to our bylaws, no matter how minor, unless you do it by a proper bylaw amendment, as required by our bylaws. Those supporting this proposed motion say that it simply "clarifies" the current bylaw and that all it takes to add that clarifying language to the bylaws is a simple motion. What say you, please?
