Newly formed corporations are not required to draft bylaws in the state of Iowa, however we recommend strongly that they do regardless to ensure smooth operating for years to come. These documents are frequently the only form of documentation which the rules and regulations of a given entity are laid out in black and white to the officers’ satisfaction. Likewise, they will help your corporation appear legitimate in the eyes of financial institutions, government agencies, and competitors. Please feel free to utilize our free bylaws template, available below in both MS Word and PDF formatting, in the drafting of your own bylaws. Once complete, have your lawyers review the document and disseminate it to all relevant members within your organization.
