Subject: ADS Constitution & Bylaws
Oops! Ron Butters has pointed out a neglected matter. It has been a long time
since we published the ADS constitution and bylaws. If you religiously (or
even sacrilegiously) save back issues of NADS, you'll find these documents in
23.1 (January 1991) 10-12. But to make them more available, I'm sending the
complete text to Natalie and asking her to put it on our Web site.
The C & B are too long to stuff in everyone's e-mailbox, but if you would
like an e-mail copy, send me a message and I'll oblige.
Meanwhile, here is the Constitutional statement Ron asked about:
The American Dialect Society is organized in the interest of the academic
community and not for profit. Its object is the study of the English language
in North America, together with other languages or dialects of other
languages influencing it or influenced by it.
