III. Re-examination of IASECS Constitution: We’d like to propose forming a committee to examine our Constitution in light of the possibility of future hybrid or online meetings and any other adjustments that may be needed. The committee present a report (and motion if needed) at the next business meeting in St. Louis, 2023. We thought of proposing that the committee be the 5 members of the newly elected Executive Board, plus 5 more volunteers.
