Model

Model

  • No ACM Bylaws changed; use existing authority of ACM EC

  • SGB policy on when SGB EC will recommend a by-laws change to ACM EC without membership vote

    • Notice to members without 3% objecting

    • Set of changes pre-approved by SGB

  • None of this removes the SGB EC discretion on whether a proposed set of by-law changes is advisable


Pre authorized changes

Pre-authorized changes

  • Change between 2-year and 3-year terms (*)

  • Restrictions on term extensions (*)

    • Disallow for a SIG

    • Reduce to 1-year

    • Allow full one-term extension

  • Election of some or all SIG officers at large, without designation of roles (*)

    • Must have a mechanism for how they will be organized

    • Must require at least n+1 candidates for n positions at large


Model

  • Election of some or all SIG officers by specified role (*)

    • Must require at least 2 candidates for any role

  • Addition or removal of ex officio non-votingmembers to a SIG executive committee

    • This would cover not only newsletter editors, webmasters, but also could cover advisory boards, conference chairs

  • Addition of past-chairs as officers of a SIG / voting members of the SIG executive committee


Model

  • Title changes within a role

    • E.g., chair, president, etc.

  • Separation or consolidation of roles

    • E.g., secretary/treasurer vs. separate offices

  • Addition of new elected officers

  • Change of election schedule, but not later than the ACM guidelines

    (*) Starred changes apply starting with the SIG’s next election, not to the currently-elected officers.


Resolutions

Resolutions

In the interest of encouraging SIGs to adopt best practices in governance, the SGB enacts a streamlined practice for approving SIG by-law changes:

  • For specific changes requested by a majority of a SIG’s elected officers, pre-authorized by the SGB, and approved by the SGB EC

  • In lieu of a membership vote, these proposed by-laws will be announced to the membership, and unless 3% of members object …

  • By-laws will be forwarded directly to the ACM EC for adoption
