To UWAA Members:

The Executive Committee of the UWAA Board of Directors met on August 2 to review the comments received to that point, primarily from the period of July 17-31, but we also reviewed several comments received informally and sent directly to the Executive Director. Our full board is currently reviewing the comments received from members as well. It is our desire to be as transparent and as open as possible through this Bylaws Revision Process.  

We wanted to take a moment to thank everyone that provided input to this point. It is obvious that the UWAA represents the 'heart and soul' and passion for the membership and that changes to our structure were taken seriously. There were points made that were both for and against a variety of the changes, and all of these have been reviewed and considered. We expect several suggestions to be incorporated into the final proposal and will be represented in the official notice that will be distributed to members on August 14 for a comprehensive review.  

The final summary of the amendments and the redline bylaws reflecting the proposed amendments will be posted and available for review on the UWAA website on August 14. The board expects to act on the proposal at the September board meeting. If approved, the proposal will be presented to the membership for voting on September 17, 2018. 

Thanks again to all for the input and dedication to our alma mater! Go Pokes and “The World Needs More Cowboys!"
