2019 Proposed Bylaws Changes

Proposed changes to the NC NOW Bylaws for the 2019 NC NOW State Conference on 11/9/19.

In general, change all references from NOW regions to NOW districts. National NOW went to districts in 2015.  There are 11 references to regions.

Also, expand date range for NC NOW state conferences to be held, from Oct. 15 to Nov. 15. There is no need to hold them before October 15 if the NC NOW PAC has no endorsements in the fall election.
