This year, the MBBA undertook a comprehensive review of the MBBA's By-laws with the goal of identifying appropriate revisions. The Board has approved the proposed amendments, which fall into two categories: (i) compliance with the New York Not-for-Profit Corporation Law and (ii) updating procedures. Members are invited to vote on a resolution to approve the amended and restated By-laws during the MBBA Annual Meeting.
The Annual Meeting Notice Period is now open.
