Model Bylaws for Local Boards

To develop and modify your local board/association Bylaws, use the following documents, offered in both Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat formats. Beginning 2018, NAR will cease annually publishing model bylaws. The 2017 Model Bylaws for Local and State Associations will continue to be available. NAR has created a new monthly series called Good Sense Governance to provide local and state associations with resources to enable them to implement bylaws, policies, and procedures tailored to the association’s needs.
