The PWC Bylaws is a comprehensive document that outlines the rules that govern the internal management of our organization. Bylaws are written by the organization’s Bylaws Committee and cover the organizational structure, membership, constituency, dues and finance, officer duties, nominations and elections, conventions, how board and executive committee members are elected, community service programs, committees, amendments, and ethical standards, among others. The revised version of these bylaws will be approved later in September.
