You know how critical it is to maintain up-to-date, federally compliant bylaws.
Simply put, the attention an organization pays to keeping its bylaws current is a direct reflection of its commitment to high-quality performance standards. Still, there is a world of difference between knowing what a bylaw should contain and succinctly translating that idea into words. Sloppy drafting or poorly worded provisions can all-too-often hamper effective clinical governance, opening the door to confusion or liability.
