About the Amended and Revised Bylaws
Live Free’s original bylaws of the 1970s are long lost. They became completely impractical as the organization diminished in size and operations in the early 1990s. Live Free operated under a set of guidelines until it began it revival and expansions after 9/11/2001. A new set of formal bylaws was adopted in April of 2004. In ten years the organization continued to develop and expand. Several amendments were adopted, but exceptions to the bylaws often had to be made to meet practical considerations. A number of significant amendment to the bylaws were proposed, debated and adopted at the May 22nd annual meeting. The amendments are intended to open more opportunities for member participation and empowerment. These changes primarily effected the composition of the governing body, the election of officers and the designation of responsibilities. In turn these changes required alterations in other sections to avoid confusing and conflicting rules. Several items were rendered redundant or unnecessary, by these changes. Additional: some errors and confusing wording in existing text need to be fixed. The new bylaws reflect the approved amendments and their effect and intent.

The PDF below is the new bylaws reflecting the changes.
