Bylaws vote approved during Annual Meeting
Unanimous approval of the members present at the Annual Meeting also set the stage for a vote of the membership to approve revisions to the Society's bylaws. Members receiving this issue are also receiving a supplement explaining the revisions along with a ballot to approve or reject the updated language.
The changes reflect advances in technology, changes in the profession's ethics enforcement program, and changes in Ohio law since the bylaws were last updated in 1997.
Key changes in the proposed bylaws revision include:
* Permitting increased use of e-mail for actions by the Society's governing bodies
* Adoption of recent changes to the Joint Ethics Enforcement Program administered by the AICPA
* A reorganization of the bylaws to combine similar provisions by topic
Members have until Sept. 4 to return ballots.
The 2006-07 Executive Board of The Ohio Society of CPAs was installed at the Annual Meeting in Columbus on June 22.
