VFW Post 4709 By-Laws
The final draft version By-Laws are now posted in the Canteen for member review and discussion. Minor changes incorporating Department recommendations have been included. Once all members have been notified, they will be voted on by the Post. Leave any written comments with the Quartermaster, Bartender on duty, or e-mail them to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also request that By-Laws be e-mailed to you.
Once By-Laws have been approved by the Post, we will begin working on Standing Rules. By-Laws give broad-stroke guidance & procedure, while Standing Rules are much more specific, and govern how the Post runs day-to-day.
