Bylaws: Overview

The Association’s Bylaws are the “vital document that protect the member and their organization[; t]hey relate to the fundamental structure of the organization, its composition, and its functions. They include the rights and obligations of members and officers whether present or absent and the rights of the minority as well as the majority. The provisions are of such importance that they cannot be suspended even by unanimous consent unless the [bylaws] provide for their own suspension.” Floyd M. Riddick & Miriam H.
