Corporate Governance Through Bylaw Management
In the Spring 2001 and Fall 2001 semesters, the University of Florida Levin College of Law Conservation Clinic worked with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Recreation and Parks, Bureau of Parks District 2, to create the Citizen Support Organization Corporate Governance Manual. Citizen Support Organizations are statutory non-profit corporate entities which work with the state parks. The manual explains Florida law and legal issues concerning bylaws and corporate governance. The manual includes a bylaws template and recommendations for resolving governance issues through corporate bylaws. While tailored to CSOs, the manual is also applicable to governance issues arising from the by-laws of any non-profit corporations.
