If something is very important to an organization (like a By-Law change) it is handled differently and with more gravity. The old (95?) By-Law is still in effect until it is changed by the old rules that are part of it, not by the new rules that part of the new By-Law. Part of every By-Law is a section on how to it is to be amended. Parties that want to change your By-Law usually have to give elaborate written notice to the entire membership in advance of a vote. Then it is usually a 2/3 vote. This is so members who do not ordinarily attend meetings also have a say on the important issues. For instance, retirees would be interested in By-Law changes but might not attend regular monthly meetings. Keep up the good fight, but remember to only agree to a By-Law that your membership controls the next changes with at least a 2/3 vote so changes don't come to quickly.
Sorry for misunderstanding... I'll be more direct.
