Webinar: Review of Board Policy and ByLaws: Your Board's greatest resource!

March 08, 2022
12:00 PM to 01:00 PM

All non-profit organizations need bylaws to exist, but what do they mean and why are they important?

Bylaws are the operating manual for every non-profit and its board of directors. Like all operating manuals, we tend to only read them when something goes wrong and we need to solve a problem or troubleshoot an issue.

This webinar will cover the purpose of bylaws and what provisions should be included, the common challenges faced in writing them, and the answers to some frequently asked questions like, "what is the right number of board members for our organization?" or "how long should our term limits be?"

Join us for this webinar and develop a better understanding of your organization's most valuable resource!

Be sure to join us for the other two webinars in this series:

This webinar is recommended for executive directors and board members who currently work or volunteer for a non-profit organization and would like to become more familiar with bylaws and how to make them reflect the needs of the organization.
