The Bylaws Committee has updated the sample unit and association bylaws and bylaws checklists for the new association, unit, and youth group kits. The updated documents don’t contain any major changes, but do include several references to the NAP bylaw changes made during the 2015 biennial convention. The updates also clarify and add to the endnotes in each set of suggested bylaws.
These documents are intended primarily for new associations, units, and youth groups but existing ones may also find them useful when considering amendments to their bylaws. Groups should pay particular attention to those provisions for which endnotes specify that no changes may be made except within narrowly defined limits.
The kits are available in the documents section of the NAP website. Questions concerning the suggested bylaws or bylaws checklists may be directed to Bylaws Committee Chairman Weldon Merritt at weldonLmerritt@gmail.com.
