Bylaws Amendments

If a set of bylaws sets forth the following:

Amendments to Bylaws

1A: Procedure for the State Executive Committee to Propose Amendments

[details about how the State Executive Committee does this]

1B: Procedure for Approval of Proposed Changes

[details about how the delegates at an annual convention can approve the changes proposed by the State Executive Committee]

 

And then moves on to other articles, is this the only way that amendments can be done or can a member propose a change.  IOW, does the fact that there is a specific procedure for the State Executive Committee to do so and silence about members does this entail that the members cannot? or do submissions from members have to be explicitly excluded?

I may have a followup question.

If the bylaws provide a specific method for amending the bylaws, then that is the only method which may be used to amend the bylaws. So if the bylaws provide that amendments are proposed by the State Executive Committee and approved/amended by the convention, then only the State Executive Committee may propose amendments.
