The Society for News Design held its quarterly business meeting on June 18, 2021. The leadership council updated members on the financial health of the organization, member survey results, initiatives and a new proposal for restructuring the organization’s board of directors and election process. 

The proposal — a motion to restructure the Society’s board of directors paired with an immediate open call for candidates, to be followed by a full membership election — can be read in full on SND.org. Questions or concerns about the proposal can be directed to any member of the Leadership Council.
