Structure Committee and Bylaws

Bylaws Information

Download the LWML Texas District Bylaws PDF format or MS Word Doc 97-2003 version as amended June 2016 and the Standing Rules as amended September 2016 in PDF format.

Do Bylaws Need Revising?

Articles on Object, Membership and Parliamentary Authority MUST conform to national bylaws. (Zones: In addition, the article on representation at national convention must conform to national bylaws.)


Write flexible bylaws. Be brief; use barebones bylaws as a guide.
Use Standing Rules for items that may need frequent changing, such as meeting information, ad hoc committees, convention expenses for delegates, etc.

Send proposed revisions to the District Structure Committee for approval prior to adoption. After adoption, notify Structure Committee Chairman (preferably by email).
