At the September 17, 2015 Annual POPAI Business meeting, the membership approved changes to the organization’s by-laws.
The changes are primarily related to Life Membership; i.e., how to apply for Life Membership and clarification regarding Life Member voting privileges.
A further clarification regarding Executive Board qualifications was adopted: all Executive Board members must be employed as a probation officer in Indiana, be certified as a probation officer by the Judicial Conference of Indiana and be a probation officer member or life member of POPAI in good standing.
The revised by-laws have an added “character clause” Executive Board members: Any verifiable criminal, moral, or unethical act committed by an Executive Board member while acting in that capacity may result in the request for resignation from the Executive Board.
The newly revised by-laws are posted on the POPAI website at the following link. 2015 POPAI By-laws
