ACNM Bylaws

First adopted in 1955, the ACNM Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws is the guiding document which defines the structure and function of all areas of the organization. 

The current Bylaws were amended and approved in 2008. Starting in 2014, the ACNM Bylaws Committee, chaired by Linda Nanni, CNM, is collecting information as part of the research phase for a potential 2015 amendment process, to be presented to the Board of Directors at the September meeting. 

The ACNM Bylaws Committee reviews all proposed changes to Bylaws, including Standard Rules and Procedures (SROPs) for the ACNM volunteer structure (affiliates, divisions, committees, task forces, and caucuses). Upon their review, the committee makes a recommendation to the ACNM Board of Directors for approval.

Region V Representative Lynne Himmelreich, CNM, is the Board Liaison to the committee, and national office contacts are Chief Executive Officer Lorrie Kaplan and Executive Assistant Cari Ross
