Is there any circumstance when the by-laws can be set aside if they disagree with what needs to happen in a meeting?

Yes. There is a circumstance where you can set aside a parliamentary rule embedded in your bylaws.

Those rules which are in the nature of "rules of order" may be suspended.

You cannot suspend anything and everything. Don't go crazy.

thank you.

Generally, no.

Only rules that are clearly in the nature of rules of order can be suspended.  That is, rules that concern the procedural aspects of how the meeting is run.  

But the vast majority of things in the bylaws cannot be suspended.  Furthermore, other than duly adopted amendments to the bylaws, anything done that conflicts with the bylaws is null and void.
