THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS HAS APPROVED A NEW ORGANIZATIONAL BY-LAW FOR OMAH. THIS IS A CRITICAL FIRST STEP IN STREAMLINING AND MODERNIZING ALL OMAH GOVERNANCE PROCEDURES AND POLICIES. THE BY-LAW COVERS ISSUES SUCH AS THE CONDUCT OF BOARD AND MEMBERS' AND DIRECTORS' MEETINGS, EXECUTIVE ROLES, CLASSES OF MEMBERSHIP AND THE LIKE. IT IS THE GOAL OF THE GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE TO MORE CLEARLY SEPARATE GOVERNANCE POLICIES FROM THOSE THAT COVER DAY-TO-DAY MUSEUM OPERATION. A MOTION WILL BE MADE AT THE AGM ON JUNE 13, 2019, SEEKING APPROVAL OF THE BY-LAW BY THE MEMBERSHIP. A COPY OF THE BY-LAW IS POSTED BELOW TO DOWNLOAD.
