We’re Making Changes To Our Bylaws

The West Adams Neighborhood Council has started the annual process of revising our bylaws, the foundation of our council. This is your chance to make a real difference in how our council operates by sharing your thoughts and suggestions on our bylaws.

What Are Bylaws?

Bylaws are a foundational governing guide that dictates the operations of the neighborhood council. They’re not just boring legal mumbo jumbo. Think of them as WANC’s very own recipe book, outlining how we work together, who contributes, and how decisions are made. They ensure everyone gets a fair say and our community dish, aka WANC, stays delicious and nutritious. Here is a link to our existing WANC Bylaws.

How Can You Get Involved?
