Bylaws are the rules and regulations enacted by an association or a corporation to provide a framework for its operation and management. They may specify the qualifications, rights, and liabilities of membership; the powers and duties of officers and other governing bodies; and grounds for the dissolution of an organization. Bylaws must be formally adopted/amended.
Our bylaws consist of 18 articles, each covering a different aspect of the organization. Each time a change (amendment) is made to the bylaws, it must be formally approved and adopted by the Board of Regents.

CHEST has a clear and explicit policy on conflict of interest for members holding a leadership position within the organization. Leaders annually complete a disclosure form for review, supporting our value of transparency. As with bylaws, each time a change (amendment) is made to the policy, it must be formally approved and adopted by the Board of Regents.
