OCEAN Regions

The proposed bylaws were adopted, essentially changing OCEAN’s 8 basin structure for representation to a new 5 region structure. The total number of directors remains at 11, with at-large positions increasing from 3 to 6 representatives. Three at-large representatives will be elected from each of two geographic regions called Eastern At-large and Western At-large, which are described in the bylaws.
