Proposed Bylaws Amendment
An amendment to the Greater Nashville REALTORS® bylaws will be voted on by the membership within the regular voting cycle for the Board of Directors election November 1-30, 2018.

This amendment concerns the process of amending the bylaws. The proposed amendment allows the Greater Nashville REALTORS® Board of Directors the ability to amend the bylaws as needed. 

It is not uncommon for the elected leaders of an organization to have the ability to update the bylaws. It also allows our organization the ability to act quickly, responsibly and nimbly as needed. The Board of Directors are best positioned to understand the needs of the organization especially when it comes to the intricacies of the bylaws and have a legal responsibility to make the best decisions for the organization as a whole.

The Board of Directors are legally bound by the fiduciary duty of care, loyalty and obedience. These duties require officers and directors to act in a manner which they believe to be in the best interests of the association. They must give undivided allegiance to the association when making decisions affecting the association and must act in accordance with the organization's articles of incorporation, bylaws, and other governing documents, as well as all applicable laws and regulations.
