More news and updates……
The NNOA membership made the following changes to our by-laws at our 2016 annual conference. You can read the amendments in their entirety on our website: NNOA.org
- Added sexual orientation as a trait that NNOA will not use to deny membership. Currently, the only traits that the NNOA Articles of Incorporation list that cannot be used to deny membership into NNOA are race, creed, color, sex, religion and national origin.
- The Articles of Incorporation were modified to allow voting for BoD nominees during the week of the Conference and not just during the dates of the Conference. Currently the Articles of Incorporation only allow for voting for BOD nominees during the dates of the Conference.
- Replaced terms Public Affairs Officer and Judge Advocate General with the terms Public Relations Officer and Legal Advisor, respectively.
- In Membership processing, the period of regular membership for each member will be one year from the date that member submits his or her payment.
