The CSHEMA Bylaws are the governing rules by which the association operates. CSHEMA’s bylaws were last updated in 2018. 

The following prompted the Board of Trustees to review the current Bylaws for potential changes:

  1. CSHEMA changed management companies in October 2020 which, in turn, changed the location of the Principal Office which is stated in our Bylaws.
  2. Increasingly, over the years, the Board of Trustees and the Principal Office have run into challenges interpreting membership category definitions, particularly as they relate to private companies and non-profit organizations wishing to join, market or collaborate with CSHEMA.

While working to address the above two issues, the Board of Trustees took on the challenge of tackling an in-depth review of the Bylaws in their entirety.

Recently, a Town Hall meeting was held to answer questions about revisions to the CSHEMA Bylaws.  The meeting was recorded and is available here.

An FAQ document was prepared which may answer your questions about the changes.  Otherwise, you can reach out to Meagan Fitzpatrick (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with additional questions. 

Voting to approve the changes to the Bylaws will begin tomorrow, June 23rd and run through July 13, 2021.  The three voting members from each institution will receive the link to vote tomorrow morning.
