Although it might not be the document most commonly on the minds of organization members, officers or staff, bylaws form the backbone of governance for nonprofit organizations and, therefore, are a very important document. When nonprofits need to consult their bylaws, such as when a membership dispute, concern about director, meeting notice, or voting issue arises, this important document provides the ethical and legal framework for the procedural workings and structure of the organization.   OCAIR’s ByLaws are provided here to comply with state law, and in the spirit of transparency, provided for all members and potential registrants to examine.
