We would like to update our bylaws in two areas.  These will be discussed and voted on at our May SMPO meeting. Per our current bylaws, we must make this public at least five business days prior to the meeting so people may know the proposed changes.
 
 

Amendment A:

This includes but is not limited to the President, Vice President, Business Manager, and Assistant Business Manager. If the rudder member does not have the valid badge for the year in office, the SMPO will reimburse the fees incurred by obtaining this badge through the Cincinnati Public Schools.
