BYHA Bylaw Approval

A vote byt the BYHA membership is needed to approve the BYHA Bylaws linked below.  We have been not able to find any previously approved Bylaws so we asked a local law firm (Barna, Guzy & Steffen, Ltd.) to create a Bylaws based on review of the articles of 2012 that in place, the current law for non-profits, and BYHA practices, policies and procedure to assure all is in good order and compliant.  

The current board has reviewed and approved the bylaws as written and now we need a majority vote by the membership to sign and adopt the Resolution and Bylaws below.  

Please review and cast your vote for the BYHA Bylaws.  If you do not approve as written, we ask for your reason(s) so we can consider them for a revision.
