Bylaws are the self-imposed rules governing an incorporated company. The bylaws cover details such as the structure of the company, what the company's goals are, and how often shareholders meet.
They also explain the voting process and how officers, committees, and board members are chosen. A company can put almost any provisions in its bylaws, as long as the rules don't break federal or local law.
