Do you use the word bylaw or bylaws when talking about the adopted rules used by an organization?   Is each article a bylaw making up the bylaws (plural)?

The document is referred to as the bylaws, treated as a plural, when used in that form as a noun.  In the role of an adjective, it is used as the singular, such as a bylaw amendment or bylaw provision.  

More rarely, it is used as a singular noun, as when referring to a bylaw, rule, or policy.  Such an individual provision is often referred to as a rule within the bylaws
