AFS Virtual Town Hall
November 22 at 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm EST
The American Folklore Society proposes five amendments to the AFS Bylaws for your consideration. Together, these proposed amendments aim to make AFS more adaptable, agile, and sustainable for the long term. The Board urges you to review these proposals carefully and thoughtfully with the needs of all members in mind, and cast your vote on these measures on the 2022 Election ballot. Learn more about the proposed bylaws amendments.
Some of the proposals are related: Proposal 1 and Proposal 4 overlap, and Proposal 4 and Proposal 5 are offered separately but in tandem. Vote for each proposal individually. This structure allows for the possibility that one or more will not pass, giving you the most power to decide the makeup of the Executive Board for the future.
Voting opens November 22 and closes December 23. All current members will receive an email with an individualized link to the secure ballot when the election opens on Tuesday.
We invite you to a virtual town hall on Tuesday, November 22 at 12 pm EST where you can learn more, ask questions, and share your views. Register for the town hall to receive the Zoom link.
