June 28, 2016: Over the past few months, the OEHA board has been discussing necessary updates that are needed to our bylaws and constitution. The proposed changes are here. The board is attempting to modernize the documents so that they best work for today’s interactions. We are also proposing to add an Education Director position to the board. This individual would take on the current duties of the Vice President. The Vice President would then take on the duties of interacting with our technical and standing committees, and making sure the committees remain active and relevant.
