LEGISLATION

A benefit to USBC membership is ability to be part of USBC governance and submitting legislation you believe would be best for the sport.
 

Any member or chartered state or local association may submit a proposed amendment to the adult league
rules, adult tournament rules or these bylaws, except with respect to provisions for compliance with USOPC rules and regulations and provisions related to Athletes and Youth and other provisions mandated by the Articles of Incorporation or applicable law.

Amendments must be submitted in writing and received by USBC Headquarters on or before September 1 prior to the date of the next USBC Annual Meeting. Approval of an amendment to these Bylaws requires a two-thirds vote of the Delegates, present and voting at the USBC Annual Meeting where a quorum is present. Approval of an amendment to the adult league rules or adult tournaments rules requires a majority vote of the Delegates, present and voting at the USBC Annual Meeting where a quorum is present.      

Legislation will be available in the early spring, prior to the annual meeting.
