Question: Bylaws Adoption Date is before Incorporation Date

Our bylaws were adopted June 6, 2012 but we were not officially incorporated with the state of California until June 22, 2012. I'm now completing Form 1023 to become tax exempt 501(c)3. Will there be a problem that the Bylaws were adopted before our certification of articles of incorporation? Do I need to readopt the bylaws?

That's not unusual -- it's relatively common to get the group up and running, and then deal with incorporation and tax-exempt status. I doubt it will be a problem.
