In April 2016, the SCA Board decided to engage in a thorough review of our organization’s Bylaws. To the best of our knowledge, our Bylaws were last amended in May 2003. Much has evolved in the past thirteen years, including state law, recommended best practices, and our own operating procedures.

Please find three document links below for your review:
Final Report Summary of Recommended Changes
SCA Bylaws – Current
SCA Bylaws – Recommended Revisions

We recommended that the following motion be considered at a Special Meeting of the members to be held at the earliest convenient date and time (e.g., January 20, 2017):
“That this meeting adopt the recommendations of the Seattle Counselors Association Bylaw Committee contained in its Final Report of December 14, 2016 [(with) or (without)] amendment.”
