Your bylaws should specify some parliamentary authority, and I think it is safe to say that most If not all) of us on this forum would say it should be RONR. RONR is not the only possible choice, but it is by far the most comonly used amd the moct comprehensive.

If your bylaws do not specify a parliamentary authority, you can adopt one by a Special Rule of Order, but this should be considered a stopgap until you can amend the bylaws to specify one. If you don't specfy any parliamentary authority, your organization is bound by the common parliamentary law, which bears a remarkable resemblence to the rules in RONR

Considering Guest Jon, in one of his other threads, is uncertain if the assembly can even propose a bylaw amendment, this might be a good strategy for the assembly to consider until they figure that problem out and get an amendment prepared.
