Our Bylaws

Bylaws were developed during the incorporation phase of MBCD and amended in the years after the date of incorporation. Bylaws are the rules that govern the internal management of MBCD. They are written by the organization's founders and board and cover, at minimum, topics such as how the board of directors are elected, how meetings of MBCD are conducted, and what officers the organization will have and their duties.  Bylaws and the Articles of Incorporation, are the primary official documents of MBCD. The particular requirements for bylaws are set by the State of Missouri in which the MBCD incorporates.   You may obtain the copy of proposed bylaws (to be voted in 2015) by clicking here.
