WHAT ARE BYLAWS?
Bylaws are used to define the structure and organization of a nonprofit organization and are the rules adopted by an organization for the governance of its members and the regulation of its affairs.
WHY THE BYLAWS REVISIONS?
Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles' (GSGLA) bylaws were developed in September 2008. Since then, we have identified some areas in need of refinement. GSGLA formed a bylaws task force, comprised of board members, volunteers, and staff, to rewrite our bylaws and present the newly proposed bylaws to our membership for approval at the GSGLA Annual Meeting on April 13, 2013.
WHO VOTES ON THE BYLAWS?
Any individual 14 years of age and over who is a member of the Girl Scout Movement and who is currently registered through the council, including staff of the council.
