On behalf of the Supreme Chapter, I am writing with several important reminders for the upcoming year.
(1)ANNUAL DUES: dues are to be paid/postmarked by December 31, 2020. Attached is the annual dues form.
(2)ANNUAL MEETING: We are still working on the details and format for our annual meeting. Our 2021 meeting will be online. More details to follow.
(3)ANNUAL AWARDS: We are accepting nominations for Leeper, Craig, and Chapter Awards, as well as Vice-President. Please use attached form for Leeper and Craig Award nominations. For Chapter Award nominations, simply send your chapter annual report before Dec. 31. For Vice-President nominations, please include a short statement of your nomination and abbreviated CV. We are not currently accepting Research Award applications; the next award will be March 2022.
(4)PROPOSED BYLAWS: Please find attached select amended bylaws for vote at the March 2021 meeting. These are the same bylaws intended for vote at the 2020 meeting - no changes were made to the original proposals for Article XI or Article IX.5.
We have added one addition since March of 2020 (Art. IX.B.1), and it permits flexibility in our annual meeting for situations such as 2020. This new addition is not finalized, but reflects the need to amend the restrictive language that prevented us from holding an annual meeting this year. You may provide comments for IX.B.1 until November 30.
(5) If you are no longer your chapter’s liaison to the Supreme Chapter, please forward this letter to the current representative.
(6) If you are unable to access the website (www.okusupreme.org), please contact us to reset your password. Upon reset, change your password. We recommend keeping login ID your chapter name.
(7) We are always looking for volunteers interested in serving on a Supreme Chapter committee. Please contact us if you are interested.
