  3. Regularly monitoring the WACAC bylaws and determining any necessary changes. All Bylaw changes need to be voted on by WACAC’s membership.

    • The exact dates of the voting period varies from year to year, but it always follows the mandated parameters in the Bylaws.
    • The dates and exact ballot items for the Spring 2021 elections have not yet been set.
