The EdTA Board of Directors revised the organization’s policies on membership and chapter governance during its October teleconference meeting.
The revisions to the Chapter Governance Policy outline in greater detail the process of chapter director succession planning, including elections and term limits. The Membership Policy revisions clarify the definition of a school for the purposes of determining eligibility to establish an International Thespian Society troupe.
In both instances, said EdTA Executive Director Julie Woffington, the revisions are intended to strengthen and clarify the existing policy language. The revised documents will be posted to this website’s Codes and Policies page after a legal review has been completed.
The Board also certified the results of the September election, in which Stephen Gregg and Lynn Jensen were elected to Board seats and Frank M. Pruet became the organization’s next vice president / president.
