WE NEED YOUR VOTES!!!  Vote on changes to our IRLS Constitution. Details in our July Newsletter--Changes are in red.   
Basically :  Secretary/Treasurer  separates to Secretary and Treasurer positions; Newsletter Editor becomes a non-elected position;
Quorum for meetings is reduced; and digital communication becomes standard with separate mailings to non-email members.  
We, the IRLS Board, think these changes will help IRLS to communicate better with IRLS members in the future.                                    
PLEASE cast your vote  to the Proposed IRLS Constitutional Changes  :
