Vote for Bylaw Amendment Falls Short

Voting on the proposed Bylaw amendments ended Friday, December 15 at 11:59 PM Eastern. USRowing partnered with Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS) to administer the 2017 Bylaw vote.

The final results of the vote to approve the revised bylaws is as follows:

  • Do Not Approve: 50.9%
  • Approve: 49.1%

As a result, the composition of the current 14 Board Directors remains unchanged and is listed below. 

  • One (1) Male Vice Chair
  • One (1) Female Vice Chair
  • Six (6) Regional Directors
  • Two (2) AAC Athlete Directors (one male, one female)
  • Two (2) Athlete Member Directors (one male, one female)
  • Two (2) “At-Large” Directors


Please note that according to the current bylaws, 2/3 of the eligible members must vote yes to approve these revisions.  We will also publish updates tomorrow that address the voting schedule for the vacant board seats (refer to list of candidates). 

As we approach 2018, we will continue to build on the momentum from the past year and to work even more closely to advance an inclusive agenda.  

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact Patrick or Susan at USRowing.
