Draft – Niles Historical Society
The NHS Constitution and Policy Manual, 10-20-16

The Third Amended Constitution of the Niles Historical Society was put together by the Constitution Committee and reviewed by the Board of Directors. All elements from the original Second Amended Constitution, the By-Laws from the certification process with the State Historical Society, as well as other constitutional documents that have gone through the same rigorous process of two readings before a vote, remain in this document. Some, however, have lived past their usefulness as we move to a more digital world. Those elements use a “strikethrough” method of indicating that the committee and the Board consider them no longer useful and should be either replaced or removed.

The key to understanding this draft review is: all new language is in blue. All strikethroughs are either replaced or removed. All language in green indicates that the section has been relocated to a new area that better deals with the content at hand.

This document is divided into 2 parts, the Constitution and the Policy Manual. The Constitution contains language that describes the organization of the Niles Historical Society and how it is established. The Policy Manual deals with the way the organization shall operate. All will follow Roberts Rules of Order, volume 11. Both documents are mirror images of each other. If Membership is Article III in the Constitution, then it is Section 3 in the Policy Manual. Where there are no policies listed for articles in the Constitution, there is a blank section in the Policy Manual.

The Official Review and the Fiscal Review have been added. Here, any changes to either document must be noted in the Official Review. Any major additions or expenditures will be noted in the Fiscal Review. This provides the Society with a quick way to look up information to make decision for amendments where the specific article, section, or number must be identified and presented in writing, and the change must be inserted into its proper location upon ratification where it belongs and will be recorded in the Official Review.

This document had its first reading on Saturday, June 4, 2016. It is posted on the Niles Historical Society’s website so members who were not able to attend the meeting may access it for consideration.
