Blog Bite: What common bylaw-related pitfalls should non-profit organizations be aware of, and how can they be avoided?

October 15, 2013

This article posted on our partner site Mondaq.com informs the directors, officers, and other staff of non-profit organizations of the fifteen most common pitfalls with respect to their corporate by-laws and the ways to avoid them. For instance, the author notes that non-profit organizations can more appropriately reflect the governance arrangements of the organization by making use of newer non-profit corporation acts to establish “designated bodies” that hold power under the corporate by-laws.

We note that the pitfalls found here are also pitfalls that would potentially befall a for-profit corporation, so this article is a worthwhile read for any new incorporator or corporate secretary. This “blog bite” comes to you as a part of Clausehound’s collaboration with Mondaq!
