From Meredith Goldsmith: Online Vote on Amendments to the By-Laws

If you haven’t yet voted on these amendments, please click on the link and vote. Thanks.

The Edith Wharton Society

We request a vote from Society members on two amendments to the by-laws of the EWS,  both discussed at MLA in January. The first involves adding the webmaster to the Exec Board ex-officio; the second modifies the term of the Editor of the _EWR_ from five years to three to five years. For the first, the rationale is to ensure good communication  between the webmaster, the Board, and the Society at large; the second is to allow for more frequent rotation of editors and to increase opportunities for participation in the journal.

In each case, please give a yes or no vote. Voting will close at the ALA in May.
