A Call For Comments on the Procedures for Electing Steering
Committee Members and on a Proposed Amendment to the Bylaws on
As was reported in the Fall 2004 Newsletter, the URPE Steering
Committee discussed the procedures used to conduct elections for the
Steering Committee at its Fall (September 2004) meeting, and it was
decided to solicit comments on this issue. Accordingly, we invite all URPE
members to write up their opinions and recommendations and submit them
for inclusion in the Newsletter and on the URPE website.
In addition, members are invited to comment on a proposed bylaws
amendment relating to this issue. The URPE Bylaws mandate a discussion,
open to all members, of any proposed amendment. Since not every member
has access to this website, all comments received by April 7 will be printed
in the Spring Newsletter, and comments received after that date but before
July 1 will be printed in the Summer Newsletter. Members are requested to
keep their pieces under 750 words.
An original proposal and a few comments in response to the call in the
Winter Newsletter are already posted on the URPE Web site.
Send your comments simultaneously to Paddy Quick for the Newsletter and
to Al Campbell for the web page. For the Newsletter, send an email or an
email attachment to Newsletter Editor Paddy Quick at
paddyquick at aol.com or a hard copy letter to Paddy Quick, Economics
Department, St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
For the web page, send an email or email attachment to Al Campbell at
