I agree with Dave Feagles recommendation that the By Laws should be revised to remove the term limits for FNPS members serving in the positions of Secretary and Treasurer.  These are difficult positions to fill and require members who are able to attend many, many meetings and have the expertise required to perform the tasks required of them.

After the discussion at the last Board meeting, I agree with Winnie's proposal above.  That we keep the current term limits for the Treasurer and change the limits for the Secretary.

I agree with all other proposed revisions 1-24-2016 document.
