While doing our required internal financial review and accompanying risk assessment this year, we discovered that the chapter bylaws were inadvertently missing a standard article from when we rebranded from ASTD!!! That article is Article XIII with language related to the dissolution of the chapter and disbursement of assets.
In consultation with our contact at National ATD, we've added that article to make our bylaws align with best practices for nonprofits and be in compliance with both state and national standards.
As a membership organization, though, we do need to have any changes to the bylaws (even those we inadvertently left out!) approved by the membership.
