Article XIV Amendment of Bylaws

14.01 AMENDMENTS

Proposed amendments to these by-laws must be introduced in writing at a regular meeting of the Caucus and made available to the membership for Bylaws of the Houston GLBT Political Caucus review and comment for a period ending forty-eight (48) hours prior to the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Caucus. Proposed amendments can be approved by a two-thirds (2/3) vote at any of the three regularly scheduled Caucus meetings following the meeting at which proposed amendments were introduced. If proposed amendments are not approved within that time period, they will be considered expired and cannot be considered without being reintroduced. Members may propose changes to a proposed amendment by submitting those proposed changes to the Chair of the Bylaws Committee during the review and comment period. In the event such proposed changes are minor, non-substantive, and do not change the meaning or purpose of the proposed amendment, the By-laws Committee may incorporate them directly into the proposed amendment for consideration. If such proposed changes are major, substantive, change the meaning or purpose, or are otherwise in conflict with the proposed amendment, the competing proposals may be presented to the membership concurrently.

14.02 EXCEPTIONS

The titles of articles and sections, and the numerical order of each article and section shall be deemed information of reference and shall not be considered part of the Bylaws subject to Section 14.01. The Bylaws Committee shall reserve the right to edit titles and numerical order, and to correct simple, non-substantive spelling or punctuation errors that do not change the meaning or intent of these Bylaws.
