Article VIII - Amendment
These Rules may be amended by majority vote of the Authorised Representatives voting in person, by proxy, or by mail ballot, at any Annual General Meeting or Special General Meeting, provided that a written description of the items to be discussed is sent to all members at least 30 days prior to the meeting at which the amendment is to be considered. An amendment to these Rules may be proposed by any Member Organisation with two other Member Organisations as co-sponsors. Any such proposed amendment shall be reviewed by the Executive Committee for consistency, format, and purpose, but the proposer is not obliged to incorporate a revision by the Executive Committee if the proposer believes it will result in a substantive change in purpose or effect. Additionally, an amendment to these Rules may be proposed by the Executive Committee.
