Why the new system
Why the new system?

  • The Society and its Constituent Units are legally obligated to operate according to approved governance documents (with mandatory items)

  • Previous Model Bylaws

    • mandatory and optional items

    • even tweaks required burdensome Board approval

    • bureaucratic and dated requirements

    • one size fits all (not)

    • Questionable relevancy and usefulness – they were simply ignored


Standard bylaws for sections
