The National Judge Advocate presents the proposals to the Constitution and By-Laws Committee of the National Convention for discussion, and if merited, presents them to the delegates of the Convention for a vote. Amendments submitted by the Constitution and By-Laws Committee require a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the delegates present for adoption. If a change is presented at the Convention, then it must be approved unanimously by the registered delegates present at the convention for adoption.
