The Association of the U.S. Army’s Council of Trustees is recommending several bylaws changes, subject to a general membership vote, that include renaming the council to become a board of directors and limiting the size of the board to between 11 and 15 people.

A vote by AUSA’s general membership to ratify bylaws changes is required by Article XI of the existing bylaws.

The bylaws changes were recommended by the Advisory Board of Directors’ Standing Bylaws Committee.

In addition to converting trustees into a board of directors and setting a range for the number of board members, the recommended revisions are:

  • The board chairman and deputy chairman would be elected from the board of directors by their fellow directors.
  • The president of the association and region presidents will serve during their terms as ex officio, non-voting members of the board of directors.
  • References to state organizations will be removed from the bylaws, and other sections of the bylaws will be edited and updated.
