WCRA 2012 Bylaws Report                                                        August 22, 2012

At the WCRA Annual Meeting (Fall 2011) a proposal was made to change wording from active to member and the category of associate member to be abolished. This action would require a change to the WCRA Bylaws. The following change is proposed and must be ratified by 2/3 of the membership.

Article III

Membership

SECTION 1:  The classes of membership shall be divided as follows:

CURRENT WORDING

A.  ACTIVE

An active member shall be one who is directly involved with any or all facets of Cancer Registry work; that is, one who works directly with the operation, function or supervision of Cancer Registry and has paid the current dues.  Active members who left the Cancer Registry field may renew as active members.  An active member shall be entitled to full membership privileges including the right to vote, to hold office, to serve as chairman or member of a committee, and to receive printed matter of the Association.

B:  ASSOCIATE:

An associate member is one who is not directly involved with the Cancer Registry work itself, but has an interest in Cancer Registry work or in the field of oncology and has paid current dues.  An associate member is entitled to limited membership privileges including the right to receive printed matter of the Association and to serve as chairman or member of the committee.  An associate member cannot vote nor hold office.
