nonprofit board bylaws

nonprofit business writing of bylaws

purpose

The nonprofit board wanted reformat board structure so it was more conducisive with modern levels of engagement, restricitons on time, and the difficulty in securing new members. This portfolio example shows the updated language to the relevant sections of the Bylaws prior to review by an attorney. (see Section 9: Committees)


result

The board changed from the traditional committee makeup to have the traditional Executive Committe and two other committees: one for internal affairs (such as budget, oversight of the Executive Director, etc) and external affairs (such as fundraising, marketing, events, etc). This reduced the number of committees each member needed to sit on, streamlined communication on the various initiatives, and removed duplication of work.
