#1.  At this past Friday's General Session OVARC meeting, the Board Directors presented the new revisions to the OVARC By-Laws to the membership.  A brief summary of key changes to the current by-laws was made and members present were asked to review the document and forward comments directly to the Board.  Every current OVARC member was emailed a copy of both the old and revised by-laws document, and is urged to carefully review the changes and get in touch with any board member in advance of next month's general session meeting.  At next month's meeting the members present will be asked to vote on the adoption of the revised OVARC by-laws.
