In a request for new chapter status, all new chapters’ bylaws must comply with the mandatory provisions of CGJA Policy 12.50B. The template provided is designed to help chapters develop their bylaws. Those provisions shown in boxes on the template must be included in all new chapter bylaws or when chapters revise their existing bylaws. They must be included either verbatim or with minor, non-substantive modifications. However, chapters may use their own bylaws format, as long as the mandatory language is included.
You may open, print or save this template which is in Microsoft Word format to use as the basis as you create or update your chapter bylaws.
