  • Bylaws and Policy Update

    Greetings Chapter Board Members

    AMTA National Board of Directors has approved amendments to bylaws and policy through emergency provisions set forth in Delaware Law. These temporary changes allow AMTA chapters to conduct their annual spring meetings online instead of in-person. Chapter elections may also be conducted in this manner (if applicable).

    The chapter relations team will work with all chapters on plans to conduct your virtual annual meetings and elections.

    Bylaws and the policy manual have been updated to reflect the approved changes and have been uploaded to the Hub:
