Sec. 4. The Membership Committee of three members shall consult with applicants or prospective members, acquaint them with the purposes of the Society and with the obligations incurred with membership, and consider such persons and propose their names, if satisfactory, to the Society for election to membership. It shall further be the duty of the committee to consider members' applications for student status and to review the membership from time to time for persons to be nominated as Honored Members. The Committee shall meet at least once, early in the year, to establish a new list of nonmembers, including organizations, to whom Society meeting announcements shall be sent, in an effort to increase membership and meeting attendance. The chairperson shall provide the managing secretary with a copy of the list and retain a copy for the committee records.

Sec. 5. The Program Committee shall plan the various meetings, including the field days, arrange for speakers, encourage members to bring exhibits, and contribute short notes and observations, and improve the meetings of the Society in other ways. The chairperson shall call all meetings of the committee after consultation with the president. The committee shall inform the managing secretary of the Society as to the programs of the meetings in sufficient time to permit the issuing of the specific notices of the meetings.

Sec. 6. Prior to the annual meeting of the Society, the chairperson of each standing committee shall contact the members of his/her committee and determine whether or not each wishes to continue his/ her committee service for another year. Each chairperson shall then immediately notify the president, in writing, whether or not members have resigned for the following year. Committee vacancies known at this time shall be filled by appointment by the president not later than the next regular meeting of the membership.

Section 1. Membership shall be open to persons interested in insects or other Arthropoda.

Sec. 2. An applicant for membership will communicate with a member of the Membership Committee and pay his or her dues in advance. The Membership Committee shall then nominate the applicant for membership at the next regular meeting of the Society. An affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present at any meeting is required, whereupon the applicant becomes a member. The chairperson shall furnish the managing secretary and treasurer with the names and mailing addresses of the newly-elected members.

Sec. 3. The Executive Board shall fix the annual dues for regular members and student members, the annual subscription rate for The Pan-Pacific Entomologist, and the prices for back issues of The PanPacific Entomologist and other Society publications. Changes in dues, rates, and prices shall be announced at the next regular meeting of the Society and published in the proceedings. The dues are payable in advance. Each additional member (called a family member) in the immediate family of a regular member may pay dues of only $1.00 per year, but this shall entitle said family to only one subscription to The Pan-Pacific Entomologist.

Sec. 4. Members at retirement with at least ten (10) years of active membership may, on request, be continued as active members without payment of dues. Moreover, such members, if they desire, may receive The Pan-Pacific Entomologist upon payment of one-half regular membership dues per year.

Sec. 5. Students registered at any school or recognized institution of higher learning are eligible for student membership. Student members shall have all the privileges of regular members.

Sec. 6. Any member who, through long and distinguished service to the Society, is deemed worthy of special recognition may be elected an Honored Member. Candidates for honored membership shall be nominated by the Membership Committee at the Society meeting prior to their election by the membership, or they may be elected directly by the Executive Board, with announcement of the election made at the next Society meeting and recorded in the Society's proceedings. Such members shall be free from the payment of dues or other financial obligations but shall retain all privileges of regular members.

Sec. 7. All members, except retired members or as herein otherwise provided, shall receive The PanPacific Entomologist with no additional charge.

–  –  –

Section 1. At least four regular meetings shall be held each year, preferably with two in the fall and two in the spring, with an annual Field Day or equivalent.

Regular notice of such meetings shall be given to each member at his or her request either personally or by mail, or other means of communication, charges prepaid, addressed to such member at his or her address, if any, appearing upon the books of the Society, or given by him or her to the Society for the purpose of notice. All such notices shall be sent to the members not less than ten (10) days before such meeting.

Sec. 2. Special meetings may be called at any time at the discretion of the president, or shall be called at the request of five members, provided that written notice is sent to all members at least two weeks in advance of the meeting.

Sec. 3. The December meeting of each year shall be known as the Annual Meeting. At this time, in addition to the election of officers and the transacting of other regular and special business, annual reports of all committees shall be submitted as well as an annual report of the treasurer.

Sec. 4. The presence in person of ten (10) members of the Society at any regular or special meeting shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business, but less than a quorum may adjourn any meeting from time to time and the meeting may be held as adjournment without further notice.

–  –  –

The Society may accredit delegates, appointed by the president, to national and international meetings such as the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the International Entomological Congresses. Members may be accredited by a two-thirds vote of the members present at any meeting.

–  –  –

These Bylaws may be amended or repealed by the Executive Board, subject always to the power of the members to change or repeal such Bylaws; or by the vote or written assent of a majority of the members; or by a majority of a quorum at a meeting of the members duly called for the purpose of amending the Bylaws.
