By-laws for the Indiana Inter-College Council on Aging. The group
present approved the name and decided that it will be known as
Willard Mays will make the revisions in the By-laws
and email a copy to everyone. Major points made at today’s

membership – that of Associate – and the addition
of a Secretary/Treasurer officer to the Executive Committee.
While a provision for dues/fees for the organization
was added to the By-laws, further discussion as to a recommended
amount and implementation was tabled until another meeting.
A question was raised regarding the invitation to
join IICA being made to other college and universities in the
state and it was agreed that it should be an entity that awards

Council will decide upon awarding membership to those that apply.
