    The purpose of this proposal is threefold.


    First. Prohibit the E.C. from making any rule additions, modifications, or deletions. The one exception is the E.C. will retain the right to implement temporary safety related rule changes if those changes are determined to be urgent.


    Second. Put in place procedures for adding, modifying, or deleting rules that will insure such proposals can be reviewed by the shooting population prior to a vote at the annual B.O.D. Meeting.


    Third. Prohibit the introduction of any additions, modifications, or deletions to the rules at the annual B.O.D. meeting that have not been submitted per the following requirements:


    Proposed Changes


    The E.C. of the ATA is prohibited from making any additions, modifications, or deletions to the current rules with one exception. They retain the right to implement temporary safety related rule changes if those changes are determined to be urgent. Any such safety changes must be voted on at the next annual BOD meeting.


    Any current ATA member may submit a written proposal to add, modify, or delete a current rule to their delegate.


    Any proposed additions, modifications, or deletions of the rules must be submitted to a members delegate no later than the of the second week in February prior to the annual B.O.D. meeting. Proposals received in the ATA office after the end of the second week in February will be considered invalid.


    The member's delegate will review the proposal and confirm the applicable sections and sub-sections of the current ATA rules are defined in the proposal. The delegates sole responsibility is confirm the applicable sections and sub-sections are in order and not to agree or disagree with the proposal. Once the review is complete and the delegate confirms the proposal meets the sections and sub-sections requirements he/she will forward it to the ATA office by either mail or e-mail.


    The ATA office will review each proposal as received, re-affirm the delegate's review regarding sections and sub-sections, assign the proposal a number, then post the proposal on the ATA web-site within 10 days of receipt.


    The author of the proposal may remove the proposal from consideration by written notification to the ATA office and their delegate, after which the ATA office will remove it from the web-site.


    Proposals will be placed before the attending delegates for consideration at the annual meeting in the order in which they were received at the ATA office.

    You would let every member submit rules changes and require the delegates to act on then at the annual meeting. There are members out there (many on TS. Com) who would individually submit dozens year. Where would the delegates find the time to consider and vote on hundreds of proposed rule changes no matter how ridiculous they might be? Man that's a really great idea!

    Radical changes are an outward signal of an organization that is showing signs of rapid deterioration.
