Proposed Updates

At Honor Club Conference 2022, there will be a proposed update to the Constitution and By-Laws to add a new member to the Board of Directors with the title of Communications Coordinator. The purpose is to split the current Historian position into two complementary roles that will allow the Board to better connect with Honor Club members.
