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.


Together, let’s build a WANC that truly reflects the needs and aspirations of our vibrant neighborhood!
