Edgar County Genealogical Society members will vote on new bylaws at its March 3 meeting. The proposed bylaws are on our website and will also be included in the next newsletter.
A committee was appointed in October to review and revise the bylaws. Following advice in the FGS Bylaws Workbook, the committee decided to combine the ECGS constitution and bylaws into one document.
