Motion brought by: SNOI Board of Directors

Purpose of this amendment: 

  1. This reverses changes that were made at the 2018 member meeting, which include changes in officer names and length of officer terms

           a. Officer names were not changed consistently throughout the document
           b. Succession of president-elect, president, past-president is restored
           c. Office of Past-President is restored
           d. Term length is restored to one year for president-elect, one year for president, one year for past-president.
