To All
The AHs like most orginasitions is regulated by Bi-laws. These were
voted on and changed.  A motion was made, to table the changes, untill
more study could be done, but that was defited.  If you are a member of
the AHS, and can not afford the time and /or money to attend a
convention, you are not allowed to vote on Bi-law changes.  This can
only be changed, (according to the "rules" in the Bi-laws) by a 2/3 rds.
vote at a convention.  It is time to give every member of the AHS a
chance to vote on important changes.  This can only be done by ballot.
You need to consider, if you are attending the next convention, or know
someone who in, weather you can support a motion to change this
out-dated "requirement" in the Bi-laws.  As things stand you simply have
no real representation, on the "voting" board.  If you need more info,
please contact me.
