The Ohio Revised Code defines a non-profit corporation as "a corporation which is not formed for the pecuniary gain or profit of, and whose net earnings or any part thereof is not distributable to, its members, trustees, officers, or other private persons.”
The Bylaws is a document that provides for the operation of the association. It establishes policies and procedures for the governing of an association. The Bylaws set qualifications for the election of the board of directors, their number and term of office, their powers and duties, the appointment of officers, when and how meetings are held, quorum and voting requirements, and appointment of committees. The Bylaws are filed with the office of the Delaware County Recorder.
