A proposed change to the Department Constitution and Bylaws, Article V, Section 4, subsection b, which now reads:

“All committee members shall be appointed and may be removed for cause by the Department Commander, with the approval of the Department Executive Committee.  The Department Commander shall name the Chairman of each committee to serve until the next Department Convention.

No Legionnaire may be appointed to serve on more than one regular standing appointive Department committee at any one time.”

To be amended by:

removing “No Legionnaire may be appointed to serve on more than one regular standing appointive Department Committee at any one time.”

And adding:

“Members that are on mandated committees (Permanent Time and Place), or serving in an Alternate or Assistant position on the Department Executive Committee may also serve on an appointive Department Committee but not in a Chairmanship, with the exception of the Permanent Time and Place Chairman, who may serve in that role.

No member shall receive per diem and travel pay more than once per call, regardless of the number of committees they serve on.”

So that when amended, Article V, Section 4, subsection b, shall read:

“All committee members shall be appointed and may be removed for cause by the Department Commander, with the approval of the Department Executive Committee.  The Department Commander shall name the Chairman of each committee to serve until the next Department Convention.

Members that are on mandated committees (Permanent Time and Place), or serving in an Alternate or Assistant position on the Department Executive Committee, may also serve on an appointive Department committee but not in a Chairmanship, with the exception of the Permanent Time and Place Chairman, who may serve in that role.

No member shall receive per diem and travel pay more than once per call, regardless of the number of committees they serve on.”
