HLCCA Bylaws Committee

To all HLCCA members,
I am pleased to announce that the HLCCA has created a Bylaws Committee, the purpose of which is to make recommendations on changes to the current Bylaws which will be delivered to the HLCCA Board and Officers for approval and in turn will be presented to the Membership for ratification. The Committee consists of Chairman, Dave Talbott from Silver Spring, Maryland, Wendy MacLeod from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, Greg Crocker from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Lyn Scott Bordo from Greenwood, West Virginia and Tina Weitkamp from Fort Thomas, Kentucky. I will serve as the liaison between the Committee and the Board.

At this time, the Committee is seeking your input into recommendations for changes to the Bylaws to create a set of Amended and Restated Bylaws that can support our rapidly growing organization, now and in the future. The current Bylaws can be found on the HLCCA web-page under the Publications button. You will need to scroll to the bottom of the page and click on “click here” (see links below). The Bylaws currently in effect were adopted in 2001 and a few sections were amended in 2007. The HLCCA currently uses a compilation of the 2001 and 2007 bylaws to operate.

The Board and Officers of HLCCA want this to be an open and transparent process where all members are given the opportunity to be heard. If you have recommendations, suggestions or topics for discussion by the Bylaws Committee, please submit them by October 31, 2014, to

We look forward to hearing from you.
Jeff Kolodey
Vice President, HLCCA
