Tips for Attorneys Reviewing CAA Bylaws

Attorney Network Webinar

2016

In this webinar, we examine the main issues for an attorney to consider when asked by a CAA to review and update its bylaws. We discuss laws specifically applicable to a CAA’s bylaws, such as the CSBG and Head Start board composition requirements, and what provisions the bylaws should contain to ensure compliance with those laws. We also touch on how a CAA’s bylaws address removal, board size, term limits, and conflicts of interest.
