Delegates to the National Assembly will gather in New Orleans this summer to review and vote on proposed legislative changes to our governing documents. The National Legislative Committee, chaired by Dr. Philip Autry, reviewed and prepared proposals submitted by the delegates for the consideration of the National Executive Committee. At the latest meeting of the National Executive Committee in San Antonio, Texas, the members of the committee reviewed these proposals and selected those to be included for the publication of the Legislative Docket.
