Articles and Bylaws Vote UPDATE: AMSS has obtained a redline version (showing edits) of the Articles from the lawyer. The versions on file with the State of Wisconsin were from 1986 – yes, 1986. This was the version that the lawyer worked with to assist AMSS in bringing our society in compliance with the state of Wisconsin. Amended versions, like the one found on the AMSS website, were never filed with the state, thus not being valid amended versions.
The restated version of the Articles that were mailed to our membership provide the necessary requirements to bring our society into compliance.
Redlined Version of Articles
If you would like to resubmit your vote, now that you have access to the redlined version, please contact Brenda Gudex at firstname.lastname@example.org. A new ballot will be sent to you.
Members of the American Milking Shorthorn Society:
Updated: Members should have received (or will be shortly) a ballot to vote on the proposed restated Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws for the American Milking Shorthorn Society.
A member recently inquired as to why "redline" versions of the proposed documents have not been provided to the membership.
Unfortunately, it is not practical nor beneficial to do so in this situation. As you were informed in the explanatory letter that accompanied the ballot, wholesale changes are being proposed to both documents. The proposed documents are not being "tweaked". They are being completely restated. The large volume of changes would make "redline" versions very unwieldy and difficult to comprehend.
This is a very unusual but important project for AMSS. The proposed documents do not materially change existing AMSS governance policies and procedures. These changes are being proposed to comply with Federal and State laws. The Board of Directors strongly recommends a "yes" vote on both of the ballot questions.
