If the bylaws are to be amended is a simple majority of members present at a noticed meeting sufficient?


The amendment section of the present bylaws should specify exactly what vote is required and what notice is required and any other detail regarding amending them.  Have you looked there first?

RONR (11th ed.), p. 307, ll.5-12:  "If the bylaws or governing instrument contains no provision relating to amendment, a motion to rescind or amend applied to a constitution or to bylaws is subject to the same voting requirement as to rescind or amend special rules of order--that is, it requires (a) previous notice as described above and a two-thirds vote or (b) a vote of a majority of the entire membership."
