Constitution and By-Laws Decisions

Many changes were made to the Constitution and By-Laws. It was rather difficult to follow if you didn't have a copy of those documents in front of you.

There was discussion, some clarification, and I added some comments myself, which I believe was the first time I spoke before the entire Congress.

To allow Co-Presidents, the vote:
45 yes, 20 no, 3 abstentions

To only pay for one President to go to any particular meeting, except IB and Congress meetings, the vote:
36 yes, 6 no, 21 abstentions

The entire day, including the decision to more than double the US Section fees, was an interesting and enlightening experience. But I don't feel my reactions to the day are appropriate in this venue.

I will say that I was a guest at the Middle East Regional Meeting and I consider that the highlight of my day.
