The proposed changes to the ANSI Constitution and By-Laws are intended to ensure that the Institute's by-laws comply with requirements in the New York Non-Profit Revitalization Act of 2013, to align the by-laws with current practice and to update membership voting provisions to allow voting by proxy. Other changes include edits to ensure gender-neutrality, new rules to increase transparency regarding related party transactions and to improve reporting of conflicts of interest involving ANSI's Board of Directors and officers.
