DMAW Bylaws

Please feel free to download our latest bylaws.

Bylaws are an organization’s operating manual. They define:

  • Size of the board and how it will function
  • Roles and duties of directors and officers
  • Rules and procedures for holding meetings, electing directors, and appointing officers
  • Conflict of interest policies and procedures

To meet the changing times, the DMAW membership at its 2018 Annual Business meeting approved bylaw changes.
