MFA Bylaws

After reviewing the current MFA Bylaws, the Bylaws committee has made a few recommended changes. In addition to stylistically reformatting the document, the two most significant changes are:

1. Expanded financial controls designed to ensure that the MFA financial processing and record keeping are fully transparent and at the highest standards of not-for-profit organizations. 

2. Specific approval of online meetings and elections.

The revised draft Bylaws document is located on the website for your review. Two other documents are there as well. One is the original Bylaws document that  shows all of the revisions that were made, and the second is a document summarizing the changes. 

You can access all three documents by clicking on the following direct URL's:
