Wiki Bureaucracy/Bylaws

This page is a part of our Wiki Bureaucracy formed so that we can do things like open a bank account for Davis Wiki.

Bylaws are rules that govern the internal operation of an organization, in this case Davis Wiki. Our bylaws should cover how directors are selected, how meetings between directors are conducted and what the directors titles and duties are.

This needs to be done very quickly so that we can open a bank account. We should draft bylaws and I hope that we can get needed input this weekend so that we can have something to give to the bank on monday. Our bylaws should be specific to the operation of solely Davis Wiki. An umbrella and general non-profit organization is being formed as well, but what concerns us now is the entity that is Davis Wiki itself.PhilipNeustrom
