What are Association bylaws?

Bylaws are guidelines for the operation of the Neighborhood Association. The bylaws define the duties of the various offices of the neighborhood’s leadership, terms of leadership, the membership's voting rights, required meetings and notices of meetings, as well as other specific items that are necessary to run the Neighborhood Association as an organization. The City has “sample” bylaws to review; however, neighborhoods are encouraged to customize them for their needs. When a neighborhood association changes or amends their bylaws they must provide an updated copy to the City’s Neighborhoods Liaison.
