Dartmouth Constitution and Petition Amendments rejected
11/02/2006 03:46:00 PM | Timothy

It looks like half the alumni voted one way, and the other half another way. It's virtually a 50/50 split. From an email just received:
Fellow Alumni,

The proposed new constitution for the Association of Alumni of Dartmouth College failed to achieve the level of support necessary for passage in all-media voting that ended October 31.

A total of 12,729 alumni (51 percent) rejected the proposal, while 12,041 alumni (49 percent) voted for it. None of the proposed petition amendments to the current Association constitution received more than 53 percent approval. Approval by two-thirds of alumni voting was required to pass any constitutional amendments. Accordingly, Dartmouth's current system of alumni governance remains unchanged.

Thirty-eight percent of eligible alumni (24,834) participated in the vote, a record turnout of which we can all be proud.

Voting results for the additional four petition amendments to the current constitution are:

Amendment #2: Article VI (Order of Business)
12,074 voted to accept (51%), 11,587 voted to reject (49%)

Amendment #3: Article III (Meetings)
12,338 voted to accept (52%), 11,273 voted to reject (48%)

Amendment #4: Article VII (Amendments)
11,572 voted to accept (50%), 11,719 voted to reject (50%)

Amendment #5: Article IV (Officers)
12,533 voted to accept (53%), 10,931 voted to reject (47%)

The Association would like to thank the members of the Alumni Governance Task Force who worked to create this proposal and bring it forward for your consideration.

Sincerely,


Stanley A. Colla Jr. '66 Tu'86

Secretary-Treasurer
Association of Alumni of Dartmouth College

Jared,

Brilliant students become stupid alums as soon as they graduate. Look out, it could happen to you, too.
