Please note that among the other items to be voted on by the members at this year's annual meeting, we will be asking the Federation membership to approve a resolution to amend and restate our Certificate of Incorporation (COI).  The proposed amendment and restatement will: (a) delete the current COI provision that fixes a minimum and maximum number of Directors; and (b) consolidate the original COI and previous amendments into a single document.  The Board of Directors has approved the proposed Restated Certificate of Incorporation and recommended its approval by membership.  A copy of the proposed Restated Certificate of Incorporation and the Board Resolution of approval is available below.
