Committee on Bylaws The rules and regulations enacted by an association or a corporation to provide a framework for its operation and management.
Bylaws may specify the qualifications, rights, and liabilities of membership, and the powers, duties, and grounds for the dissolution of an met in Albuquerque, N.M., on Feb. 23 to revise the ASRT Bylaws. The committee reorganized sections of the bylaws to improve the document's format and made editing changes to improve its readability.
The group also recommended several changes to ensure that the bylaws reflect ASRT positions, operations and current practice.
Among their changes, the committee recommended eliminating the "Honorary" category of ASRT membership, which recognizes non-R.T.s who have provided exceptional service to the radiologic science profession or to the ASRT. The category has not been used since Sen. Jennings Randolph Jennings Randolph (March 8 1902–May 8 1998) was an American politician from West Virginia. He was a member of the Democratic Party and was the last surviving member of the United States Congress to have served during the first 100 days of Franklin D. , D-Va., was made an honorary member in 1982. Sen. Randolph, who died in 1998, worked diligently to pass the 1981 Consumer-Patient Radiation Health and Safety Act.
"Honorary membership has not been bestowed in more than 25 years," noted Committee Chairman Bart Pierce, B.S., R.T.(R)(MR). "Today, ASRT prefers to honor individuals by presenting them with an official award, such as the Award for Excellence in Radiologic Sciences Advocacy." The award is presented annually to legislators who support R.T. issues in Congress.
The committee also recommended deleting a list of documents that affiliate societies must submit to renew their charter agreements with ASRT each year. "The list could cause extra work for the affiliates because it is far too specific and restrictive," said Mr. Pierce. "This type of list is procedural and really doesn't belong in the bylaws document."
Also serving with Mr. Pierce on the committee were Susan Cazaux, M.B.A., R.T.(R)(M); Oluwatosin Kayode, B.S., R.T.(R)(T); and Jeffery Vaughn, M.S., R.T.(R). Kelsey Malm n. 1.
