Proposed Amendments to the Articles of Incorporation & Bylaws

As background, Bylaws are used to guide the Board of Directors’ actions and decisions. They are helpful in preventing or resolving conflicts and disagreements and they can protect the Daughters from potential problems by clearly outlining rules around authority levels, rights, and expectations.

Although Bylaws are considered to be “living documents”, typical industry practice suggest organizations
review Bylaws in its entirety no less frequently than every 5 years to ensure alignment with regulatory agencies
and internal operations while making amendments as necessary.

The most recent amendment to our Bylaws occurred in 2021 as well as with the Articles of Incorporation
which were very specific.

Your Board of Directors feel compelled to amended our existing Bylaws and the Articles of Incorporation to:
 align our Board structure with non-profit industry prevalence,
 provide a degree of flexibility to operate more efficiently without having to constantly amend our
Bylaws, and
 ensure our organization remains relevant and current with the changing cultural, social and non-profit

We welcome your review ahead of our Annual Membership meeting scheduled for February 17, 2022.
Should you have specific questions, please send them to info@daughtersofhawaii.org no later than February
3, 2022. An informational session will be held on February 8, 2022 at 4 PM HST via Zoom to review proposed
amendments and answer questions received by February 3, 2022.
