Bylaws are the basic structural rules that govern your group: how many officers you have, when elections are held, when your fiscal year begins and ends, how often you hold general meetings, etc. Bylaws are an important organizational document to give your group consistency, and they provide a ready source of information when disputes or questions arise over operating procedures. You'll also be required to have bylaws if you decide to incorporate or apply for tax-exempt status from the IRS. The article How To Write PTO Bylaws has some helpful information, including links to sample PTO bylaws.
