Dear Colleagues,

The Executive Committee and Diversity Committee of the ASN propose changes to the ASN’s Constitution and Bylaws to better integrate these two committees. These include making the Chair of the Diversity Committee a voting member and the Vice-Chair of the Diversity Committee a nonvoting member of the Executive Committee, as well as appointing the second-past president of the ASN as a member of the Diversity Committee. The full text of the revised Constitution and Bylaws can be found here:

The vote will run from October 11 to November 11.
