Not for nothing, but something that is important to most organizations that proport to use "Robert's Rules" is that By-Laws are supposed to be cumbersome to change. Most organizations require at the very least, advance written notice of each change to every member eligible to vote. Generally no amendments to the written notice allowed, and a supermajority (2/3 or 3/4) usually is required. No one wants a group of activists of any persuasion to take over one meeting and thus change a 100 year old By-Law. Make sure they go by all of (your) rules.
