Kansas corporate bylaws are regulatory provisions that govern the affairs and operations of a corporation. The bylaws can address matters such as board and shareholder meetings, the rights and responsibilities of corporate officers (and how they’re elected), consent requirements for business decisions, and the establishment of committees.
Unless stated otherwise in the articles of incorporation, the power to enact bylaws shall be vested in the board of directors. Once implemented, the bylaws may only be amended in the manner initially agreed upon when the bylaws were created.
Bylaws required? No, corporate bylaws are not required in the state of Kansas, although they are highly recommended.
