|Get ready for the new year!|
So you're probably thinking, "pshh, why are bylaws important, anyway?" Because - among other reasons - even genealogy societies need structure. Otherwise, they will crumble into so much rubble. In this episode of FGS Radio - My Society, guest Roberta "Bobbi" King provides a more detailed response to that question (and many others)!
By the way ... did you know that FGS offers the services of its Bylaws Review Committee as a benefit to members? Whether you're starting your society from scratch or simply revising your bylaws to allow for recent technology, you'll want to take advantage of that service if your society is planning any revisions.
But FIRST, you'll want to get the Bylaws Workbook (2nd ed.) to plan and draft successful bylaws.
