Dear School Owners:
On Friday, August 9, 2013, NACCAS circulated an email notifying you of an amendment to Article III, Section IV.B of NACCAS’ By-Laws. That email referred to the By-Laws amendment as having been enacted by “emergency action.” That was not correct.
In accordance with Article XV, Section I of NACCAS’ By-Laws, this amendment was previously circulated for comment by accredited schools as Proposal 2013-33 of the 2013 Policy Call for Comment (which opened on May 23, 2013 and closed July 9, 2013). Having received and reviewed public comment on the proposed amendment, the Board of Commissioners has now acted to adopt the amendment in the form circulated in our August 9, 2013 email. In accordance with Article XV, Section II of NACCAS’ By-Laws, the Commission has acted to make this amendment effective immediately.
Please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Tony Mirando at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
