Proposed HSLI Bylaws Amendment

For two years there has been an ad hoc Helen Knoll Jira Scholarship Committee reporting to the HSLI board on the Jira Scholarship fund. As this committee has a permanent role, the proposed bylaws amendment adds the Helen Knoll Jira Scholarship Committee to the list of standing committee and lists the proposed committee’s charges. Please consider the amendment below and send any comments to the HSLI Bylaws Committee Chair, Jeanne Sadlik jsadlik@luc.edu, by 12/31/2014.

 

Proposed addendum:
