WHEREAS the SARM currently has four bylaws in place including a bylaw with respect to SARM membership, a bylaw with respect to the election and appointment of officer, a bylaw with respect to the Board of Directors, and a bylaw with respect to conventions;

WHEREAS while the terms of office are for two years, there is no direction in the current bylaws as to what happens when there is an election when a position becomes vacant due to a resignation mid-term;

BE IT RESOLVED that the current SARM bylaws be updated to include Special Elections which, based on the concept of two year terms, would only fill the remaining term for the vacant position.
