Organization of the State Bar & Admissions / Bylaws of the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia / ARTICLE XIII STANDING POLICIES

The Bylaws of the Young Lawyers Division may be supplemented by the creation of standing policies as provided for in this Article. A standing policy can be created only at a meeting of the YLD members by motion made in writing and submitted to the President at least thirty (30) days prior to the meeting. Copies of the motion containing the proposed Standing Policy shall be mailed or electronically distributed to all YLD members at least twenty (20) days prior to the meeting. The motion shall thereafter be voted upon at the regularly scheduled meeting of the YLD membership next following the publication of this motion; provided, however, that a quorum of YLD members, as defined by Article X of these bylaws, is present for said meeting. The motion shall be deemed approved and the proposed standing policy adopted if a majority of those YLD members present at the meeting where the vote on the motion is conducted issue votes in favor of the motion. The provisions of this Article imposing certain time requirements may be waived with the unanimous consent of all YLD members present at any such meeting where a proposed standing policy is considered.
