An Important Survey Regarding Resolution 2 Is In Your Inbox From Zonta International.

COMPLETE BY JULY 24, 2020

During the Zonta International business conducted in July 2020, Zontians passed Resolutions 2 and 3, giving Zonta International the authority to simultaneously conduct a review of Zonta’s organizational structure (Resolution 2) and a revision and restatement of the bylaws (Resolution 3). ZI has been working diligently on these resolutions and is now seeking feedback from membership. The transparency and visionary planning that this survey allows all Zontians to be a part of can only be successful if Zontians participate.

For more information on this resolution, please refer to the Zonta International website: www.zonta.org/images/docs/MyZonta/Governance/Governing%20Documents/2020ProposedResolution2.pdf.
