OES Constitution Approved

The proposed OES Constitution has been approved by the OES membership. This new constitution goes into effect on January 1, 2006. Additionally, the new Bylaws will go into effect at the same time. The Bylaws were approved by the OES Administrative Committee at the OCEANS conference in Brest in June, subject to the acceptance of the Constitution by the OES membership. The next step in the evolution of the new OES governance documents is to produce the Policy and Procedure Manual.

Election of officers, as specified in the new constitution, will take place at the Administrative Committee meeting in Washington, D.C. just before OCEANS'05 Americas MTS/IEEE.
