Dear HTIA Members,
 
Our new bylaws have been approved!
An overwhelming majority of dues paid members voted YES - 94% of our voting members.
See the tally below from Online Elections.
 
 
Getting 87% of the members to vote is extraordinary. The national averages for organizations voting online is only 39%. It shows how much our members care about having a strong organization with a clear mission. 
 
The board had a meeting last night to celebrate the vote results. We've already created a Nominations Committee to set up the next election for board members in Spring 2017. We'll be replacing about half of the current board, it would be great to have you on board. 
 
Thank you for your support.  We have many other exciting developments to share, coming soon by newsletter.
 
Love & Light,
Karin Sorvik,
HTIA President
