    The Governance Committee has discussed how to deal with our association consistently having few nominees for the Council (i.e., Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary), and the Governance Committee decided to propose an amendment to Section 4 of Article IV of the Le Monde Parents Policies and Procedures (see below), so that it will be possible for C. David Maxey to help our association avoid Council vacancy by serving another term. The amendment was officially proposed in writing at a Special Meeting on December 4th, 2015, and it will be voted on at the Regular Meeting on January 11th, 2016.
