2020 National Agricultural Aviation Association Bylaw Amendments Overwhelmingly Enacted
The AssociationVoting ePolls were open from Aug. 21 until Sept. 21 for the 2020 National Agricultural Aviation Association Bylaw Amendments election and NAAA members overwhelmingly enacted three amendments to its Bylaws. The percentage of votes needed to enact changes to the NAAA Bylaws is a minimum of 50% of a quorum plus at least one additional vote. A quorum, as defined by the NAAA Bylaws, is 10% of the voting membership. Over 17% of NAAA’s voting membership participated in the Bylaws amendment election so a quorum was easily obtained.

The first amendment was designed to augment the professionalism of the association membership (and the industry) with a Code of Conduct guiding members’ professionalism. That amendment was enacted by 95.7%.

The second amendment augments membership and reduces unnecessary administrative costs to the association by removing the requirement that operators and pilots belong to a state or regional agricultural aviation association in order to join NAAA. This amendment was approved by 85.5%. It was designed to spread the NAAA’s professionalism and safety measures to all in the aerial application industry and, in turn, augment NAAA’s resources needed to deliver core services and carry out its mission on behalf of the agricultural aviation industry. NAAA’s commitment to the state and regional associations remains ever-present.

The third amendment, approved with a 94.9% majority, would broaden the electorate and validity of allied board member elections. All these changes were recommended and approved by the association’s counsel and board of directors to enable NAAA to better provide the industry with policy advocacy, public relations, education, communication and networking services.
