Transcript WSFS Constitution — continued ARTICLE IV — Constitution and Powers of the Business Meeting SECTION 1: Any proposal to amend the Constitution of WSFS shall require for passage a majority of all the votes cast on the question at the Business Meeting of the Society at which it is first debated, and also ratification by a simple majority vote of those members present and voting at a Business Meeting of the Society held at the World Convention immediately following that at which the amendment was first approved. Failure to ratify in the manner described shall void the proposed amendment. Any change to the Constitution of WSFS shall take effect at the end of the World Science Fiction Convention at which such change is ratified. This Constitution, together with all ratified amendments hereto, shall determine the conduct of the affairs of the Society. All previous Constitutions, By-Laws, and resolutions of WSFS are hereby revoked. Business Meetings of the Society shall be held at advertised times at each World Science Fiction Convention. The current Convention Committee shall provide the Presiding Officer and Staff for each Meeting. Meetings shall be conducted in accordance with Robert's Rules of Order, Newly Revised, and such other rules as may be published by the Committee in advance. SECTION 5: The Constitution of WSFS, together with an explanation of proposed changes approved but not yet ratified, shall be printed by the current Convention Committee, distributed with the Hugo nomination ballots, and printed in the Convention book, if there is one. SECTION 2: SECTION 3: SECTION 4: Business passed on TO iQwrwon ITEM 1: ITEM 2: ITEM 3: The first two items below are amendments to the WSFS Constitution that were first passed at SunCon. They are to he considered for ratification at IguanaCon and will take effect if ratified in accordance with Article IV, Sections 1 and 2, of the WSFS Constitution. Items 3 and 4 are committees that were created at SunCon and may report to IguanaCon. MOVED, to amend Article II, Section 9, of the WSFS Constitution by deleting the existing Section and inserting the following text: SECTION 9: Best Fanzine: Any generally available fannish publication devoted to science fiction, fantasy, or related subjects which has published four (4) or more issues, at least one (1) of which appeared in the previous calendar year. The words "fanzine" and "fannish" shall be defined only by the will of the membership, and the Convention Committee shall impose no additional criteria. The intent of this amendment is to eliminate disputes over what falls into the present "Amateur Magazine" category and what "amateur" and "professional" mean. The new version broadens the category to "fannish publication" and leaves definitions up to those nominating. This motion contains 59 words.

Written copies of these rules must be made available by the bidding Committee to any member of the Society on request. The intent of this amendment is to make available information on how a Convention Committee will be managed. For example, whether a chairman holds their position permanently or is periodically elected by the committee. This motion contains 71 words.
