SUMMARY OF CHANGES
Article III, Section 3: Changes the membership year from Jan 1 - Dec 31 to 'annually' based on member sign-up or renewal date. This is to be better aligned with the ability for FNFL members to join or renew at any time through our new website.

Article V: Provides clarification regarding the responsibilities of the Board Officers.
Article VIII: Provides clarification regarding FNFL committees.
Article IX, Section 4: This section allows FNFL Board meetings to be conducted in-person, via teleconference (e.g. Zoom, Go-To-Meeting, etc) or through a combination of both.
Article IX, Section 5: This section allows the FNFL Board members to entertain and vote on a motion via email when an issue is time-sensitive.
