National Bylaws, Uniform Code

These are the 1987 National Bylaws and Administrative Procedures Manual (in Adobe .pdf format), updated with changes from the 2016 National Convention. From years past, there were a myriad of “administrative errors’ throughout the entire National Bylaws and Administrative Procedures Manual. We were able to correct the “administrative errors” but had to completely restructure and reformat both documents. The contents were left intact. Therefore, it is requested that each Detachment, Department, Division, and National offices, download the document listed below as the “Complete MCL National Bylaws and Administrative Procedures Manual updated through 2016."

 

We will not publish a separate “Change 22” due to the massive corrections of the administrative errors and reformatting. Change 22 would not coincide with past copies of the National Bylaws and Administrative Procedures Manual.

 

If you are interested in the current version with all updates of the National Bylaws and Administrative Procedures, you can download the document(s) below:


 

    Please discard all past copies of the National Bylaws and Administrative procedures Manual/Uniform Code/MCL Ribbons Order of Precedence/Proposed Bylaw changes earlier than the date above. Corrections and/or layout were changed. Be sure to check back often for updates to the Bylaws/Uniform Code/MCL Ribbons Order of Precedence/Proposed Bylaws Changes files.
