A special meeting of the International Ombudsman Association convened this morning to consider bylaws revisions for the board election process, a name change for the association, and other governance updates. Procedural issues from the floor quickly derailed the intended agenda and lasted more than 45 minutes. With insufficient time left to discuss fully the bylaws motion, the matter was withdrawn and the meeting adjourned. Details regarding the future of the motion are expected after the next IOA board meeting. Meanwhile, an election of new board members and officers remains on hold and the incumbents continue to serve terms that were due to expire in April 2021.
