Our bylaws state it must be put to a vote at the next annual meeting.
When you say "it must be put to a vote", you are referring to an amendment of the bylaws. A "motion to suspend the rules" must be provided for in the bylaws or it will not work. In order to amend the bylaws you must follow the exact procedure prescribed by those bylaws for that purpose. Otherwise, you may find yourselves attacked by other members who are following the issue and perhaps oppose what you are trying to do.
