The section you quote does preclude nonpolicy topics.

The most common way to amend the constitution is to submit the change to the 
Executive Secretary no 
later than 30 days prior to the business meeting (NCA or CEDA Nats).  The 
amendment must receive 
majority support at the business meeting in order to be sent to the membership 
for a vote.

If you want to change the topic procedure, I strongly encourage you to do so 
at the NCA meeting.  For 
the sake of the topic committee, I would want to know in advance of the spring 
vote what kind of 
resolution(s) were required.
