Call for Input to the Recently Revised COAT Bylaws

Dear COTA members,

Thank you all for your participation and support to COTA community.
On behalf of the COTA Board of Directors (BOD), I am reaching out to ask for your input to our recently revised COTA Bylaws. As always, the ultimate goals of COTA are:

  • - To enhance connections among overseas transportation professionals and their counterparts in China.
  • - To promote transportation development in China by providing knowledge and expertise through its members.
  • - To enhance networking and collaboration among members of the Association.
  • - To serve as a platform to share information and knowledge on transportation development for all transportation professionals.
We are happy to see that COTA has been growing and continuously playing a critical role in connecting international transportation professionals. However, there have been great opportunities and challenges in the past few years. The BOD has carefully consulted and discussed the bylaws with a number of COTA community members and past COTA presidents, and now we are proposing a revised version of the bylaw. This would allow us to better serve the COTA community. The draft bylaw has been posted at:

http://www.cota-home.org/about_bylaws.html

I would encourage all COTA members to review and comment on the revised bylaw. If you have any thoughts, questions, advice, and edits, please feel free to reach out to me at lei@umd.edu and the BOD at http://cota-home.org/Organization_Board_Officers.html. Positive and negative comments are both welcome. As stated in the bylaw, "the proposed amendments shall be reviewed and approved by the BOD and COTA members. If the review result is unanimously positive, the approval of the amendments shall only require the agreements of at least two-thirds (2/3) of the BOD members; otherwise, a 2/3 majority of votes from COTA members is required for approval." In case of the all-member vote is required, the BOD will set up a ballot to all COTA members to vote for the amendments within approximately one month and the BOD will review the results and vote following the ballot outcome.

Thank you again for your support to COTA.

COTA president

Lei Zhang
