(Recorded Webinar) Understanding and Enhancing Your Health Center’s Bylaws: Key Elements and HRSA Requirements
A health center’s bylaws are central to its operations, establishing the road map for the governing board. For example, bylaws set forth the governing board’s authorities, the governing board’s composition, the process for appointing and removing board members and officers, the committee structure, and standards of conduct. Bylaws are also closely scrutinized by HRSA in the context of Operational Site Visits. It is accordingly crucial that health centers are familiar with their bylaws and operate in accordance with its terms.
During this webinar the presenters will review the key elements of bylaws, with a focus on HRSA requirements and common pitfalls. The presenters will also review elements of bylaws where the health center has flexibility from a drafting perspective (e.g., committee structure).
- Health Center Executive Staff
- Financial Leadership and Staff
- Administrative/Operations Leadership and Staff
- Compliance Officers
- Board members
- Other Staff assisting with HRSA compliance and/or OSV preparation
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Understand the purpose and significance of corporate bylaws
- Understand how to document the governing board’s authorities and autonomy in its corporate bylaws
- Describe areas where the health center has flexibility in structuring its bylaws (e.g., committee structure)
