AFTE Bylaws Committee

The By-Laws of the Association of Firearm and Tool Mark Examiners serve as the road map for conducting association business. It is the committee’s responsibility to receive recommended changes or modifications to the existing By-Laws and present them to the general membership for consideration. Any member of the association in good standing may suggest a modification or change to the By-Laws but must do so in writing. The committee can ignore no suggested change or modification to the By-Laws.

The committee will determine which applicable Article of the By-Laws will be affected by the proposal. The committee members will independently evaluate the suggested changes and will offer their opinions and insight regarding the modifications. The committee will then be responsible for final wording of suggested changes and present them to the general membership along with a recommendation for adoption or rejection.

Formalized changes to the AFTE Bylaws requires a vote of two-thirds (2/3) of all Regular Members present and voting at the annual business meeting.
