OF TORCH CLUBS
Thank you for everyone who attended the Special Bylaws Convention!
With 51 votes cast representing 25 clubs, the proposed bylaws were unanimously ratified at our November 13 Fall Convention on Zoom. Another 12 club members attended as interested parties. Thanks to Joe Zawicki (Region 10 Director from the Buffalo Torch club), votes were cast online, making the final tally easy to track.
Special thanks to the Bylaw Committee for all their hard work spanning over two years.
Thank you to everyone in IATC who took part in this process – researchers, commenters, readers, and delegates.
Together, we’ve made a good change for the organization.

It was wonderful to see so many of our members at the annual convention in Saratoga.
As many of you know, the ratification of the bylaws simply needed more time to gather and assess suggestions for inclusion or clarification. The IATC has taken the balance of the Summer months to bring the final version of the proposed bylaws to fruition. Our special Fall convention on November 13, 2022, will focus on bylaws change approval, making it a single-issue convention.
Special thanks to all who contributed their feedback and questions. Your comments have resulted in over 50 changes or adjustments to the original document presented in June.
We are pleased to provide you not only the Fall convention date but the consolidated documents for your review and a series of information sessions. The information sessions welcome your club officers, delegates and any of our valued individual members who have questions or are seeking clarifications.
Now is the time for club presidents to submit their delegates either via mail or by clicking the link on this page. Reviewing the documents and attending the information sessions prior to the convention will bring the hard work on the bylaws to completion before the end of this year.
With all of your questions, clarifications, and ideas, the IATC Board of Directors truly believes that the bylaw revisions are meaningful changes that update and better our organization mirroring our true vision for Torch.
