To change the allocation of delegates to the Representative Assembly.

Article III. Representative Assembly
Section 2. Allocation of Delegates.

a. Except as otherwise provided in Subsection (c) below, allocation of delegate credentials to state affiliates shall be based on the ratio of 1:1,000 Active members of the Association within the state. No state shall receive fewer than fifteen (15) delegate credentials. Other delegate credentials shall be allocated as provided in the Bylaws. Beginning with the 2022 Representative Assembly, the allocation of delegates under this subsection will be based on a ratio of 1:1,200 Active members of the Association, and no state shall receive fewer than eight (8) delegate credentials.

b. Except as otherwise provided in Subsection (c) below, allocation of delegate credentials to local affiliates shall be based on the ratio of 1:150 Active members of the Association or major fraction thereof. Local affiliates within a state may similarly join together to form membership units for the purpose of representation. Allocation of delegate credentials for such clustered local affiliates shall be based on the ratio of 1:150 Active members of the Association or major fraction thereof. Beginning with the 2022 Representative Assembly, the allocation of delegates under this subsection will be based on a ratio of 1:300 Active members of the Association.

c. The ratios to be used for the allocation of delegate credentials to state affiliates, dual-national state affiliates, and dual-national local affiliates shall be proportionately adjusted to reflect the reduction in Association dues paid by Active members of such affiliates pursuant to Bylaw 2-7.m., provided that this Article III, Section 2 (c) shall not apply to Active members of a dual-national local affiliate (i) in a state that does not have a dual-national state affiliate, and (ii) that became affiliated with the Association as a dual-national local affiliate prior to September 1, 1999.

d. The Bylaws shall define the term ethnic minority and shall seek to achieve ethnic minority representation in the Representative Assembly.
