Gatherings From the Green

This publication is the newsletter of HHS. It is usually published 3 times per year. We encourage members to subscribe to our reminder system (see box above) and read it online instead of receiving a printed version, because it saves HHS a lot of money. You can opt out of the printed version when you join HHS.

Change to Bylaws

At the Annual Meeting on October 9, 2009, members were asked to vote on several changes to the Bylaws. A new broader mission statement was proposed which more adequately describes what we do. Another suggested change was to the committee structure which operates the Society. The new Strategic Plan accepted by the Trustees on August 9 suggested that new, more comprehensive, committees might aid in the implementation of future programs. Since the standing committees are listed in the Bylaws, this necessitated a vote of the membership.

The revised Bylaws were adopted at the Annual Meeting on October 9, 2009.
