NCNMLG Bylaws July 2011
An extensive revision of the bylaws reflecting the reconfiguration of the standing committees and the extension of the term of office of treasurer was presented to the members at the business meeting on February 24, 2011, and approved by a majority of those voting by online survey in July 2011.
Bylaws govern all non-profit organizations. The bylaws direct business meetings, the topics of meetings, and how to conduct board meetings. Bylaws set the foundation for the policies and procedures of the organization. Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary says: “Bylaws are the rules adopted by an organization chiefly for the government of its members and the regulation of its affairs.”
