The GOHS By-Laws were adopted in 1999, as the foundation for basic operation of the group. Since then, there have been several amendments. Titles for those subjects which have been amended are shown in BLUE, and the amendment wording is shown following the original wording. The amended wording is the governing ideal, and the original is left for your review, only to show the effort at making the GOHS a better and more enjoyable experience. As members, you are welcome to submit suggestions for by-law amendments at the yearly meeting.
