How to properly add to current bylaws


Recommended Posts

I am the president of a youth sports league board of directors comprised of 18 members. Is there a correct way to present a bylaw addition to the board AND is there a verbiage template to present it on?


First, as my colleagues have noted, follow whatever procedures your bylaws may prescribe for their amendment. 


Generally, your proposal will be presented to the board as a main motion. Putting it in writing is optional, but since the bylaws are such an important document, it's probably best to do so. There are a number of technical terms to use for different kinds of changes, such as "add," "insert," "strike out," and so forth. See §12 Amend in RONR (11th ed.) for a complete discussion.
