The ISPA Bylaws have not been updated since 2008 upon incorporation of the society as a non-profit corporation. ISPA has matured since 2008 and operates differently today. The updated Bylaws attempt to reflect the current operations of the society and provide context to responsibilities and the corporation as a whole. We also see a need for the society to operate more globally. Thereby, these revised Bylaws expand the ISPA Board of Directors to include more people from the various regions of the world.
A summary of revisions include:
     1)  Accurate titles for officers and Board Members aligning with titles used today.
     2)  Clearer roles and responsibilities for Country Representatives (CRs).
     3)  Clearer roles for Officers and Board Members.
     4)  Update to the operations of technical Communities and how new ones can be added more efficiently.
     5)  Expanding the Board of Directors from 5 to 9 people including 1 representative from each of the following 5 regions
          of the world. The other 4 Board members are made up of the ISPA officers.
               a.  Africa
               b.  Asia/Oceania
               c.  Europe
               d.  Latin America and the Caribbean
               e.  North America
