ASLA AK Chapter Constitution and Bylaws Update: 15 Day Review Period Opens Today

August 10, 2017

The Alaska Chapter is updating the Chapter Constitution and Bylaws that were originally adopted by the Chapter in 1994.  With a few exceptions, the proposed Constitution and Bylaws follow ASLA National model Chapter Constitution and Bylaws, which were adopted by National in 2016. The chapter has been operating under a later revised version of the Constitution and Bylaws for many years, however these were never adopted by a vote of the Chapter.  An overview of changes is provided below, a detailed summary of changes is available through the Chapter’s Bylaws Committee (contact: Taylor Keegan, 


Overview Summary of Changes from 1994 version to 2016 version

Constitution – gives more power to the executive committee including increasing dues and making changes to the Bylaws without a vote of the chapter membership, but with notification of the members. Other minor editorial changes.


Bylaws – Bylaws clarify National’s role in reviewing applications for membership to the Society, assigning members to chapters, and removing members from a Chapter’s roster.  Who is eligible to become a Chapter officer and roles of Chapter officers are more detailed in the proposed bylaws; the 1994 bylaws do not specify who is eligible.  Numerous editorial changes.
