The Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona proposes amendments to its constitution, which will be voted upon by its membership at its annual meeting, May 11 at 7 p.m. at the Tucson Jewish Community Center. As required by the constitution, these changes are available for review at jfsa.org/constitutionamendments.
It is proposed that the constitution become two documents as follows:
1) A constitution, which can be amended by the membership of the Federation and which defines the purposes of the Federation and its basic structure.
2) Bylaws, which can be amended by the board of directors and which address the structure of the board and its duties in more detail.
The concept is that the constitution would stand the test of time, and would rarely require amendment. The bylaws may be amended by the board as needed.
