The article "Constitutions: An Organization's Cornerstone" (http://www.nasc.us/leadershipmag/0103_constitutions.cfm
) contained the following paragraph concerning bylaws which might be helpful to you:
"Bylaws are rules adopted by a group for its own meetings or affairs. Bylaws cover such areas as: the number of members needed to constitute a quorum (enough members to vote on an issue or proposal); procedure for filling an office that has been vacated during the year; procedure for impeachment of delinquent members and officers."
The whole article is good but deals primarily with Constitutions.
