The constitution I have on my computer is dated February 18, 2004. I presume
this is when the original constitution was approved by the board and thus
marks the official beginning of the Student Division in Ohio. Colleen says
that it was founded in 1973, and I know that Ohio had a functioning student

Hi all, 


I am getting down to revise the OABS constitution so it is up-to-date with
the latest changes we have made.  I have been in contact with Shelbi, and
one of the things we've noticed is that it would be great if we could find
the date the constitution was first adopted.  This date is not currently
listed on the constitution, and the only revision dates listed are Feb 5
2004 and the most recent one made by the current group of members.  


If anyone knows when OABS formed in Ohio and when the constitution may have
been adopted please let me know.
