Here’s the second draft of the bylaws for the Greater Charlotte Society of Professional Journalists. The template was provided by national SPJ and edited with the approach of having few specific bylaws and with flexibility of officers to create structure as the chapter grows.
Listed officers as president, vice president, secretary and treasurer, with terms to begin July 1. Elections, of course, could happen before that point. Also listed immediate past president, with an obvious clause that the post would be vacant in the first year.
Left out board of directors for the moment. We’d have to have a vote to add them to bylaws and specify their selection and terms later. Also left out an executive committee.
