ATD Tulsa Members

Your ATD Tulsa Chapter Bylaws and Policies Committee members, Sunilyn Hertt, Jennifer Roberson, and Walt Hansmann, led by committee chair Linda Jenkins, have spent the past nine months reviewing the chapter Bylaws in detail. The committee proposes several amendments to the Bylaws. The ATD Tulsa Board of Directors voted to accept these amendments and send them to the members for your review and approval.

We are notifying you today about the proposed amendments, and the voting process, so that you have time to review the proposed amendments and ask questions.
