URGENT: Please review before the conference!

In an effort of continuous improvement, the 2014-2015 FATE board members have spent the last year reviewing and revising the organization’s by-laws to ensure that FATE best serve all 21st Century educators.  We have posted the FATE by-laws on our website to share with all members and/or future members.  Please be advised that as you read through them, that  any areas the board suggest be removed are marked with a strike through and any information we’re recommending be added is underlined.  
You will have an opportunity to vote on the recommended changes during the conference.
