From time-to-time, as necessary, the OTPA by-laws are modified to adapt to changing conditions. The by-laws were last updated in 1997, so were recently evaluated by several members of the board, and discussed at the Board meeting in November, 2016.
The changes are outlined in the following document. Redlining indicates words/sentences to be removed and blue words are additions. They were posted in December, 2016 to give members a chance to review and comment.
The changes to the by-laws were discussed at the Annual Membership Meeting on January 14, 2017 and approved by a vote of the members in attendance.
