IBA Council has voted to amend the current bylaws in order to create a balanced turnover of Council seats during each election cycle. To facilitate this amendment, Secretary and one Council seat currently in the America’s cycle will transfer to the Eurasian election cycle. The amendment was approved by Council and Interim bylaws are now open for comments from the Membership for 30 days. Please take a moment to review these changes and if you have any questions or comments, email the IBA Secretary. Once the comment period is closed and membership comments are addressed, ratification by the membership for the bylaw amendment will be included on the 2017 Eurasian election cycle ballot.
