Rules to override

Recommended Posts

No one...or, I guess, anyone who can get away with it?  Would you mind providing some context?

If it helps, your bylaws (and by extension, your constitution, which outranks it) may not be suspended, except for provisions providing for their own suspension, and provisions which are clearly in the nature of rules of order.

There is no individual, though (unless your Constitution says otherwise) with a special power to ignore your rules.

Q. Who can override the Constitution?

Unclear how deep a question you are asking.

Q. Are you referring to:

   (a.) one's "constitution & bylaws" of an average nonprofit organization?

   (b.) the U.S. Constitution?

(I have an interesting answer to #b.) :)
