At its December 2005 and March 2006 meetings, the Board of Trustees approved amendments to the APA Bylaws, and, in accordance with Bylaws Chapter 11.2, which states that amendments to the Bylaws by the Board of Trustees require (1) the approval of a two-thirds majority of the voting members of the Board present at a meeting at which a quorum is present, and (2) subsequent ratification by a two-thirds vote by strength of Assembly members present at a meeting at which a quorum is present, forwarded the amendments to the Assembly for action at its May 2006 meeting.

The Assembly ratified amendments to Bylaws in Chapter 5.5 and Chapter 5.10 to change the name of the Budget Committee to the Finance and Budget Committee and to change the name of the Reference Committee to the Joint Reference Committee.

The Assembly also ratified an amendment to Chapter 2.5 that updates the language of the existing dual-membership requirement. As amended, Chapter 2.5 states: "No person, except as exempted by the Board or as otherwise provided in these Bylaws, shall become or remain a member of the Association unless that person is a member of a District Branch and participates in continuing education according to the standards of the Association."
