In a landslide vote of approval (95% in favor), CoSIDA members approved the new governance structure in June 17-19 online voting. These changes are in effect immediately. The CoSIDA Board of Directors now becomes the Executive Board of Directors and each Board member will stay on the Executive Board until their terms expires.
Over the next few months, CoSIDA will work to guide the formation of divisional cabinets and advisory council in a phase-in process. Each division will have autonomy to form their own structure.The Amendments to Articles 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11 and 12 of the CoSIDA Constitution were proposed by Herb Vincent and endorsed by the CoSIDA Board of Directors as part of a proposed modernization of the association's governance structure.
