The PDGA Board of Directors is providing notification that it is considering a change to the current bylaws of the organization. The bolded language below represents the proposed change, which is now open for a public commenting period through June 2, 2020. If approved, it will take effect on September 1, 2021.

Board members David Foss and Nate Heinold, who are up for re-election this year, recused themselves from deliberating or voting on the matter because this change is being considered during the current election cycle. 

Any feedback regarding this proposed change should be sent to the Board of Directors.

3.3 ELECTION AND APPOINTMENT OF DIRECTORS. The majority of the Board of Directors shall be elected by the Active members only, in accordance with procedures established from time to time by the Board of Directors. A minority of the Board of Directors may be appointed by the Board of Directors in order to fulfill the needs of the Corporation, as determined by the Board, for additional experience and skill sets on the Board of Directors in accordance with procedures established from time to time by the Directors. No person shall be permitted to serve on the Board of Directors who at the same time is either an employee or a paid consultant (with a signed contract) of the Corporation. Members with an ownership stake in a company, or employees of a company that (1) submits disc golf products to the PDGA for approval, such as discs or targets; or (2) uses PDGA support or funding outside of the standard sanctioning agreement, are not eligible to serve, or be appointed to serve, on the PDGA Board.
