Focus on Genealogy Society Bylaws

Focus on Genealogy Society Bylaws via FGS.org.
Get ready for the new year!
2015 is almost here. You've got new board members, and lots of great ideas from your members. How do your old bylaws stand up to all these shiny new developments? Is it time to dust them off and see if they need updating?

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, g
uest 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.
