NFRW Bylaws, revised 2015

The NFRW Bylaws are the governing rules of the organization and define our objectives, responsibilities of officers and the board of directors, and guidelines for membership, nominations and elections, biennial conventions, and much more.

Amendments to the NFRW Bylaws are considered and voted on by delegates to the biennial convention, following proposal by the NFRW Bylaws Committee and approval by the NFRW Board of Directors.

State federations and clubs are chartered under the auspices of the NFRW but operate under their own bylaws. Although independent, state and club bylaws must not conflict with the NFRW Bylaws.
