IPCA Bylaws Updated and New Officers
The bylaws for the International Polymer Clay Association were revised and approved by the Executive Board at their meeting on July 19. The revisions corrected inconsistencies in the bylaws and corrected outdated terminology.
The most significant revision was to the voting status of Regional Presidents. As of July 19, the Regional Presidents (Americas and Rest of the World) are full voting members of the Executive Board. Other changes were to update the Vice President Newsletter title to Vice President Publication and to remove the section that required the Americas Guild & Group Liaison to attend the Executive Board meetings for the first two years after the Regional Boards were put in place.
Members can log in and download a copy from the IPCA Documents section of the library.
Rashi Verma Veddy, the Executive Vice President, Membership, resigned this past June to dedicate her time to personal matters. Rashi previously served as Vice President Membership on the ROTW Board. She will continue to serve as the IPCA Representative for Southeast Asia.
Lizzi Bucklow-Holt has joined the Executive Board as Vice President, Membership. Previously Lizzi served as Regional Board Vice President: Guild and Group Liaison (Rest of the World).
