CAPLAW’s Bylaws Toolkit is just what you need to make your organization’s bylaws clear, effective, and up-to-date. The toolkit outlines key concepts for your agency’s bylaws, such as the authority of the Board of Directors, petitions for board representation, replacement of directors due to vacancies, quorum and voting policies, officers, conflicts of interest, and more. Updated information includes new sample language reflecting: the requirements of the 2007 Head Start Reauthorization, evolving governance best practices, and CAPLAW’s experience reviewing CAA bylaws over the last several years. The toolkit is available in handy electronic form.

To purchase this publication, please remit this invoice with a check payable to CAPLAW and the email address to which you would like the document to be sent.
