Wisconsin corporate bylaws are a set of rules and procedures that a corporation adopts to organize and control its internal operations. The bylaws will outline the corporation’s meeting rules, voting rights, and issuance of shares, as well as the rights and obligations of the corporation’s directors, officers, and shareholders. Although corporations are not required to adopt bylaws in Wisconsin, they may be required to present the document when dealing with investors, lenders, banks, and attorneys.
