NOTE:  Prior to the elections, we will also vote on a Proposed Bylaws change.

Proposal to Amend the Bylaws of PVA-USATF
to Eliminate Term Limits for Officers

1 - Action requested: 
To amend the Bylaws of the Potomac Valley Association to eliminate the term limit on Officers.

2- Proposed amendment: 



A. Elections of Officers: Elections for all officers of the Association shall be conducted by secret ballot every two years coinciding with the Summer and Winter Olympiad at the Annual Meeting which shall be held in September.  Each elected officer will serve a term of two (2) years ((with a three (3) term limit equal to six years)).  Each Officer-Elect will commence his/her term of office the following October 1st.

3-  Rationale: 
If the majority of the members want to change the person serving in a position, they can vote for a different person.  If they think that the person is doing a good job, that person should not be forced to step down. 

4- Constituencies affected:
