NAME CHANGE IN BY-LAWS & ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION
Whereas LB 663 removes the word “technical” in reference to Nebraska’s Community Colleges; and
Whereas LB 625 establishes “an association of community colleges” which will serve as a coordinating body for the Nebraska Community College Areas; and
Whereas the Nebraska Technical Community College Association currently provides the services as outlined in LB 625;
Now Therefore Be It Resolved that the Nebraska Technical Community College Association Board of Directors approve an amendment to the Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation of this organization to change the name of the Association to the Nebraska Community College Association, effective immediately upon approval by a majority of the area Governing Boards, as set forth in the Bylaws.
Adopted this 10th day of August 1991.
