Many organizational details are set out legally in the Articles of Incorporation, and don't need to be duplicated in the Bylaws.

Article I, Meetings

Section 1, Notice

Notice of the time and place of a meeting shall be given electronically, by posting on the corporation's Website (currently www.i3Detroit.com). Members who wish to receive notice by other means, such as electronic mail, may make such a request at any meeting, and reasonable accommodation (as determined by the Directors) shall be made.

Section 2, Regular Meetings

Regular meetings shall be held every Tuesday at 7:00pm local time, at a place determined by the Board. If a meeting is to be held at a location other than where the previous meeting took place, notice of the new location shall be given not less than 24 hours before the start of the meeting.

Section 3, Annual Meeting

The Annual Meeting, at which certain corporate business takes place, including but not limited to the presentation of the previous year's Annual Report, will be held not less than 30 but not more than 90 days from the end of the corporation's fiscal year. Notice of the exact time and location of the Annual Meeting shall be given at least 7 days in advance, in the manner specified above.

Article II,Space

Section 1, Business Office

When the Corporation acquires a physical space suitable for the purpose, the Directors may choose to make it the official business office, where corporate records are stored and made available for inspection. Until that time, the initial registered office is as specified in the Articles of Incorporation.

Section 2, Access and Use

Members in good standing will be given as much access to the space as is practical. The space may be used for any legal purpose consistent with the corporation's Purpose as stated in the Articles of Incorporation AoI, and the following guidelines:

  • Share the space with other members who're there at the same time.
  • Clean up after yourself.
  • If you need help, ask for it.
  • If it's not safe, don't do it.

Section 3, Responsibilities

Members share the responsibility of keeping the space clean, safe, and secure. Members using the space are responsible for complying with noise and other requirements during their use. (Notify someone if space found unsuitable? FIXME)
