Chapter By Laws

This now means the Chapters are governed by Bylaws drawn up in consultation with the Chapters. These bylaws  can be changed on a motion of the Board whereas previously they were embedded in the constitution and any change required a General Meeting of ACEN.

The Chapter By-laws were updated by the ACEN Board in June 2022.
