The Sacramento Valley Section Bylaws were last adopted in October 2020. Since that time, the APA California Chapter Board has approved changes to the California Chapter Bylaws that affect section bylaws, includinginformation on section board vacancies (Section 6.2(B)) and the requirement to create a Land Acknowledgement Policy (Section 10.2). Additionally, other ‘cleanup’ amendments were made to the Sacramento Valley SectionBylaws that benefit the content and readability and conform to the California Chapter sections bylaws template.More specific ‘cleanup’ amendments include expressly stated Divisions and counties within the Section, clarifying duties of officer members, and edits to Section 2.2 Consistent Bylaws.

The Sacramento Valley Section Bylaw amendments went to the Section Board members, in writing, at the regularly scheduled Board meeting of April 1, 2022, and pursuant to the bylaws, the full text of drafted amendments must be placed for member review on the Section website prior to a Board vote.  Click here to review the proposed changes.

A two‐thirds (2/3) affirmative vote of the filled seats of the Section Board is required to approve amendments to the bylaws. The voting Section Board members will entertain approval of the amended Bylaws at the regularly scheduled Board meeting of May 6, 2022. The effective date of the amendment shall be the date of the affirmative vote unless otherwise specified prior to the vote. Thereafter, the adopted amended Section Bylaws will be forwarded to the Executive Director for filing in the California Chapter office within thirty (30) days of adoption or amendmentor no later than June 5, 2022.
