All resolutions considered by the House must be offered in writing by the President, the Board of Trustees, a Society committee, by one of the component societies, or signed by five (5) members in good standing, provided such resolutions are received at the ISDS headquarters at least 15 days prior to the opening meeting of the House of Delegates. Less than 15 days prior to the opening meeting, resolutions may be submitted only by a component society or by the Board of Trustees.
A resolution presented in writing and signed by five (5) members in good standing may be submitted during the opening meeting or the business meeting of the House, provided the House gives consent, with no more than five (5) dissenting votes to allow its submission for consideration. A resolution submitted by such consent must be handed to the Secretary (ISDS Executive Director) to be filed with the minutes and may only be adopted by a majority vote unless it proposes a change in these bylaws, as specified in Chapter VIII of the Bylaws.
Amendments will be published on the official ISDS website at www.isds.org/about-us/house-of-delegates. Membership will be alerted via emails, and an ad will be included in the Illinois Dental News, directing members to the location at least thirty (30) days prior to the next annual session or special meeting.
