Proviso language


Recommended Posts

We are amending our bylaws and reducing the number of officers we have. We do not want the change to affect this year's officers, but to start with our next elections. Do we simply put the proviso language in the motion to adopt the amendment, or does the proviso language need to appear in the bylaws themselves? Thanks.

The proviso can be placed in the language of the enacting resolution or motion, or it can be placed on a separate sheet entitled "Proviso Relating to Transition". It should not be placed in the text of the bylaws themselves. RONR (10th ed.), p. 578, l. 35, through p. 579, l. 8.
