In order to harmonize the alignment of the Executive Terms of Office of ISOC-TT with the global Internet Society administrative terms, and to ensure greater stability and effectiveness of new Executive members of the ISOC-TT Chapter,
the following amendments are being proposed to the by laws:

7.4 Term of Office: an ISOC-TT Council Officer’s term of office shall be up to the date of his resignation, if he resigns and up to:
(a) Two years for the Chairmen; or
(b) One year for other members of the Executive Committee.

to be amended to

7.4 Term of Office: an ISOC-TT Council Officer’s term of office shall be up to the date of his resignation, if he resigns and up to:
(a) Two years for the Chairman and other members of the Executive Committee.
(b) Three years for non-executive Council Members

and in order to ensure the consistency within the bylaws:

12.1 Annual Meeting: Subject to the provisions of section 109 of the Act, the annual meeting of the members shall be held on such day in each year and at such time as the ISOC-TT Council may determine at any place within Trinidad and Tobago or, if all the members entitled to vote at such meeting so agree, outside Trinidad and Tobago. At this meeting the Treasurer and Secretary shall present reports and election of officers shall be held.

to be amended to

12.1 Annual Meeting: In accordance with the provisions of section 109 of the Act, the annual meeting of the members shall be held on such day in each year and at such time as the ISOC-TT Council may determine at any place within Trinidad and Tobago or, if all the members entitled to vote at such meeting so agree, outside Trinidad and Tobago. At this meeting the Treasurer and Secretary shall present reports and election of officers shall be held once their term is ending in accordance with Section 7.4.

Additionally, the ISOC-TT Council consists of the Executive, the Immediate Past Chairman and any additional members. Unfortunately , the current bylaw clause contains an error, referring to ALL past Chairmen. Therefore,

7.1 The ISOC-TT Council is the Board of Directors and shall consist of the present ISOC-TT Officers and the immediate Past ISOC-TT Chairmen and shall comprise such number not less than 3 or more than 10 persons as is fixed in the Articles of the Incorporation of the ISOC-TT.

To be amended to:
