Review individual chapter bylaws to determine compliance with chapter sample bylaws and ANAC national bylaws.
- Initiating calls for bylaws amendments. The committee receives input from the membership, whether individual, chapter, the committee itself, or the board of directors.
- Assisting members with correct parliamentary language for bylaws, and then brings proposed bylaws forward to the membership for action.
- Issuing calls for resolutions to be presented to the membership at the annual meeting.
- Bringing forth proposed resolution for action by the membership.
There is a monthly time commitment of at least one to two hours to review chapter bylaws, report such reviews to the chapter committee chair in writing and subsequent review of non-compliance. Communication with the chapter chair is essential. This committee primarily communicates via e-mail and meets for 1.5 hours in committee at the annual conference. Chapter bylaw awareness and periodic review are strongly supported by this committee. As new groups apply for chapter status, the bylaws committee works with the chapters committee by assisting potential chapters in the preparation of their ANAC-compliant bylaws.
