Motion 11: Start of Incoming College Senate

Whereas in many years, there is no longer a transition in the Chair of the College Senate,

Whereas the tradition of convening the incoming Senate was never very effective at inducting new senators,

Be it moved to amend the Bylaws of the Constitution of the Faculty of SUNY Geneseo by making the following deletions (indicated with strike-out text).

[Only those paragraphs with changes and their headings are given.  Section titles are links to the affected Section in the current Bylaws.]


Section 3: Taking Office

A member officially elected to office shall take office on the June 1 immediately following his/her election. A meeting of the incoming College Senate shall be held prior to June 1. Committee assignments will be confirmed at the first Senate meeting in the fall semester.
