Nonprofit Corporations

ORS 65.061


The incorporators or board of directors of a corporation, whichever completes the organization of the corporation at the corporation’s organizational meeting, shall adopt initial bylaws for the corporation.


The bylaws may contain any provision for managing and regulating the affairs of the corporation that is consistent with law and the articles of incorporation.


Except with respect to a corporation’s articles of incorporation, provisions in the bylaws control provisions in any other document for managing or regulating the affairs of the corporation. If a provision in the bylaws is inconsistent with a provision in the articles of incorporation, the provision in the articles of incorporation controls. [1989 c.1010 §25; 2019 c.174 §20]
