JC 3-15

MOVED: That the bylaws of the New York Physical Therapy Association, Article IX. DELEGATES TO THE ASSOCIATION HOUSE OF DELEGATES, Section 2. Election and Term, D., be amended by adding the word “At-large” so that it will read:

D. At-large Delegates and Alternate Delegates shall be elected by the Delegate Assembly. The number of Delegates shall not exceed the number to which the Chapter is apportioned; the remainder of the candidates shall be designated as Alternate Delegates and shall be called to serve as a Delegate according to the Delegate Assembly Procedure Manual.

Rationale:
To clarify that the Delegates and Alternate Delegates elected by the Delegate Assembly do not include the district designated delegates (per suggestion of the APTA Speaker of the House).

CURRENT BYLAW:

D. Delegates and Alternate Delegates shall be elected by the Delegate Assembly. The number of Delegates shall not exceed the number to which the Chapter is apportioned; the remainder of the candidates shall be designated as Alternate Delegates and shall be called to serve as a Delegate
according to the Delegate Assembly Procedure Manual.
