Constitution News

The current GASPA constitution was last updated in September of 1993, and thus, a small Ad Hoc Committee was created to propose changes to the current constitution. The Ad Hoc Committee submitted several proposed changes that were eventually incorporated into the current constitution with the approval of the GASPA Executive Board. Below is a link to the proposed GASPA constitution, which was finalized by the GASPA Executive Board in December 2005.
