AMWA’s Constitution sets forth what AMWA is and why it exists, and dictates some of how AMWA operates. The AMWA Constitution has been updated, and the update has been approved by AMWA’s Board of Directors. Now the updated Constitution is ready to be presented to AMWA’s voting members for approval.

For more information about AMWA’s Constitution update, go to

Paper ballots are being mailed to all AMWA voting members in good standing, and your vote must be received by March 6, 2017. Ballots are being mailed because the current Constitution specifies only that method.  

Time is of the essence because completed ballots must also be mailed and must be received by or before March 6, 2017 to be counted.

Have questions?  Want to make a more informed vote? 

Please join a webinar scheduled Monday, February 6, 2017, from 12 – 1 PM EST.  Esther Brooks-Asplund, President, and David Caldwell, President-elect, will discuss the proposed changes and how they affect AMWA and its members.  Please look in your email inbox for your invitation!
