1. Name and purpose. Step one should be making it clear who the bylaws are for and what they’ll let you accomplish. Make sure your bylaws include the name of your nonprofit organization and a description of your nonprofit’s mission.
2. Board member roles and terms. Next, you’ll want to clarify the roles that will make up your board. List specific officer positions, such as president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary.
3. Meeting requirements. Your bylaws should provide a general sense for how often your board will meet, such as monthly or quarterly. Remember, this doesn’t need to be specific, but you should know how many times you expect to meet over the course of a year.
4. Board composition. Bylaws around your board’s composition should include the required minimum and maximum number of members the board needs to have at any given time.
5. Bylaw review process. Change management models can help your nonprofit adapt through transitional, developmental, and transformational changes as you move from your first year of operations into fully scaling your mission.
6. Conflict-of-interest policy. Your nonprofit exists to serve the needs of your target population, not your board members. You should have a policy regarding conflict of interest to formalize oversight and prevent the occurrence of your board members inappropriately profiting from their affiliation with your nonprofit.
7. Indemnification clause. Your bylaws should include an indemnification clause for your board members. “Indemnification clause” is a fancy, needlessly intimidating phrase that simply means your nonprofit will limit the personal liability of your board members should a legal issue occur.
8. Dissolution procedures. The last thing you want to do when forming a new nonprofit — thinking about all the positive changes you’ll soon bring into the world — is to consider how you’ll dissolve it.
