    I have raised this issue with the current Board already re a possible change to the ByLaws
    I find it very disappointing and frustrating that as a member since about 1986 and a past Board member I am not able to vote BECAUSE I am no longer an IBCLC. On retirement financial reasons dictated this decision.

    I am also a FILCA – so the ByLaws really needs to address this inability for us who have retired to vote in an organisation we are passionate about..
