Voting closed at midnight on the morning of January 2, 2019. The amendment was approved for a vote by the Executive Board at its September 2018 meeting and was intended to allow for a more expeditious process to help SIOP keep up with the pace of technology and decision making. Previously, the timeframe for electronic votes by the board or the EAC was 30 days. The amendment changed the timeframe for EAC votes to 7 days and the timeframe for votes of the full Executive Board to 14 days. The amendments are contained in Article IV, Section 4, and the updated bylaws can be read in their entirety here. The final vote was 393 for the amendment, 13 against.
