SALT LAKE CITY: During its business meeting in Salt Lake City last week, held prior to the annual conference, the PRSA voted down a bylaw amendment to establish the assembly as its central policy-making body.

The Central Michigan chapter made the proposal.

Approved bylaw amendments included one granting PRSSA members eligibility to join PRSA five months before graduation; one providing assembly representation to PRSA members outside the US and Canada; one establishing a two-year term limit for members of the nominating committee; and one changing the PRSA leader's title from "president and CEO" to "chair and CEO."

PRSA has a shortlist of candidates identified to replace COO Catherine Bolton, but a successor has not been chosen, said Rhoda Weiss, PRSA's 2007 chair.
