When do amendments to a Constitution go into effect?

I had thought that it was different from bylaws which go into effect immediately but rather constitution amendments go into effect upon adjournment sine die but now I cannot find any answer to this question (the organization is operating under the 11th).  Can you help a sister out here?

Mr. Huynh is correct. RONR treats bylaws and a constitution the same, although if an organization has both, the constitution is deemed the superior document. Amendments to both documents go into effect immediately upon adoption unless the document itself or a proviso provides otherwise.  I will try to find the reference in RONR which says they are treated the same way.
