Motion to temporarily override the by-laws

we are a small non-profit organization and we have a by-law on determination of annual member dues which states that the amount shall be a total of the past year's bills amount divided by the number of current members. 

A motion was made and passed to temporarily override the normal dues amount in order to attract new members.  If not enough new members are accepted the dues amount will be adjusted to cover the difference.  Was this a valid motion?

Such a motion would be valid only if adopted as a bylaws amendment, and it would have to specify the meaning of "temporarily."
