The board candidates are the first item on the e-ballot. Once you cast your vote for the board candidates, you may move on to the bylaws changes. There are 10 changes to the bylaws. You will vote on each change one at a time. A proposed amendment to the Bylaws is adopted upon an affirmative vote by at least two-thirds majority of the returned ballots. 

After answering all of the bylaws questions, the system will prompt you to submit your ballot. Once you submit your ballot, you will receive a receipt.

Once you access the voting site and start voting, please finish your ballot in one session. You will need to answer all of the questions to submit your ballot.

Bylaws Amendments

This year, the Governance Committee asked the chairs of RESNA’s five independent boards to review their sections of the bylaws and submit any updates or changes for consideration. The following boards submitted changes:

  • Assistive Technology Journal Board
  • Professional Standards Board
  • CoA-Rate Board

The Governance Committee reviewed all requested changes and sent them to the Board of Directors for approval. The Board of Directors approved the changes at their meeting in March.

The changes proposed include updates to current practice, corrections to grammatical errors, clarification of roles and responsibilities, and one change to board composition (CoA-Rate).  In order to make an informed decision, here are resources to help with your voting:

If you have questions about the proposed changes, please feel free to reach out to the office or the board chairs:
