Hello AIRRS Section Members!

I have great news to share with you. The Board of the HPS and the Rules Committee have approved the proposed changes to the Charter and By-Laws and now, I present them to you for review. The changes are summarized below to assist you in your review of the documents. I hope that you will agree that these are positive changes for the section and will vote to approve the amended Charter and By-Laws.
