Subject: DCHAS By law ballot results

The deadline for postmarking ballots for the bylaws was April 1, so I  
believe that I am likely to have received all valid ballots by this  
point. The results are
> 205 in favor
> 6 opposed
> 3 unmarked ballots

The next step will be submission of these results to the American  
Chemical Society's Committee on Constitution and Bylaws, who will  
review the ballot and results before making the changes official.

Several people commented on the challenge of casting a single vote on  
so many changes at once. This approach was taken at the suggestion of  
the Committee on Constitution and Bylaws. The CHAS Executive  
Committee expects to be able to implement item by item voting when  
electronic balloting becomes an official avenue of conducting  
division business.

Thanks to all who participated in this process!
