As we move closer to the 2006 convention, July 8-15 in Jacksonville, Fla., our thoughts turn to many things. We are busy making final travel arrangements, deciding which meetings, mixers and tours we want to register for, and so much more.

Don't forget that convention time is your chance to propose amendments to the ACB constitution and bylaws. All amendments must be submitted in writing to the constitution and bylaws committee. Amendments should include the current language and the amending language when submitted. You can either contact the ACB national office to request a copy of the constitution and bylaws, or access it from the ACB web site, The deadline for amendments to be submitted will be Monday, July 10 at 5 p.m.

You may either bring your proposed amendments to the convention, send them to the ACB national office, Attention Constitution and Bylaws Committee, 1155 15th Street NW, Suite 1004, Washington, DC 20005; or e-mail them to me at [email protected] I will have access to e-mail during the convention, so if you do not get your amendments to me prior to the start of the convention, you can still e-mail them to me, as long as I have them by the deadline of July 10 at 5 p.m.

Thank you for your time, effort and interest in improving ACB's governing document. The meeting schedule for the constitution and bylaws committee during convention will be:

Saturday, July 8, 2-4 p.m.

Monday, July 10, 5-7 p.m.
