Purpose of Corporate Bylaws
Corporate bylaws are used by organizations to establish the policies, procedures, and guidelines that specify how the business is run. The bylaws serve as a document for corporate governance that addresses procedures like officer elections and business meetings.Since every organization is different, there is usually some room for customization when drafting bylaws. The goal is to have a governing document that expresses the organization’s desired management style. Bylaws also help to keep things more organized within the organization because they contain provisions that all parties can agree upon. In this manner, everyone is aware of the proper workings of the organization, including voting procedures, employer-employee relations, and communication protocols.
