The National Constitution & Bylaws serve as the governing documents for all members and affiliates of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity and should guide all National Policies, regional policies, Chapter Policies, and Alumni Association Policies.
During the Fraternity’s 56th National Convention held in New Orleans, Louisiana, the National Assembly gathered to vote upon our National Executive Committee for the triennium as well as vote upon any changes or revisions deemed necessary for our governing documents.
The Assembly is made up of the members of the National Executive Committee, the members of the Fraternity’s Council of Province Governors and the members of the Fraternity’s Council of Collegiate Province Representatives, who serve as voting delegates to the National Convention.
During deliberations, the National Assembly voted and made several changes and revisions to the National Constitution & Bylaws. A summary of the most significant changes is highlighted below.
The majority of the revisions concerned edits for consistency, and a rearrangement of content to achieve a more logical organization of the document. In keeping with standard practices for parliamentary procedures, we have added line numbers as well, to aid in citations and future revisions that may be required.
