Bylaws

Bylaws are a legal document that is the organization's operating manual.  They define:  size of the board and how it will function; roles and duties of directors and officers; rules and procedures for holding meetings, electing directors, and appointing officers; conflict of interest policies and procedures; and other essential corporate governance matters.  

Below are the revised Bylaws as proposed by the Bylaws Committee which met on December 3, 2015.  These Bylaws were approved at the Board meeting on January 4, 2016.  

Changes included:

compensation and reimbursement (page 8);

the roles of the Immediate Past Chair, Chair, and Treasurer in regard to signatory authority (pages 9 and 10).
