After answering a question about By-law amendments, I thought that I would start a topic discussing different By-law amendments I have seen and to hear what other people have read or experienced. Here are what I have seen: 1) Any member can propose an amendment at the AGM, or a special meeting can be called. Either with a 2/3 vote or a majority vote of all members. 2) The Board may make changes (for large organizations with members covering a large area, as it might be hard for members to attend a meeting.) 3) The Board approves the change first, and then places it before the membership. 4) A By-laws committee to offer amendments - and some organizations may require an amendment be offered to the Committee first. #3 and #4 have an obvious issue - you do not want to amendments made to By-laws that do not exist or to make sure that the entire document (i.e. all the by-laws) will be consistent - it is possible that by changing By-law #4 that the amended verision will either make by-law #6 useless or be in conflict with #6.
