WEF Constitution and Bylaws Modification Vote

Dear Delegates,

We’re getting close to reaching the number of required votes for the WEF Constitution and Bylaws modification, so with this note, I am asking that each of you vote if you haven’t already done so, and ask at least one WEF member to vote by sharing this email and voting link.  And, if you’ve already voted, THANK YOU!

The WEF Board of Trustees is pleased to present the following proposed modifications to the Constitution & Bylaws (C&B). These changes are intended to clarify roles and processes, help WEF be flexible and responsive to member needs, and enable us to meet the Critical Objectives of our Strategic Plan.

Article 10.2.1 of the WEF Constitution & Bylaws requires that amendments to the Constitution & Bylaws be approved by the WEF membership, with 5% of the membership representing a voting quorum (Article 8.5.3).   

These modifications have been a collaborative effort, with review and input from the C&B Subcommittee, House of Delegates Steering Committee, the Committee Leadership Council, and the Board Governance Committee.

We request your support of these changes that will foster greater engagement with our membership, maintain our strategic focus, and place WEF on a successful path to serve the water sector of the future.

Please read the summary of the proposed modifications, review the complete set of changes proposed to the Constitution & Bylaws, then cast your vote below. Your vote is important!   And once again, I am asking that you ask at least one other WEF member to vote in support of these changes as well.

Thank you for your attention to this request!
