Individuals currently filing a new corporation with the Rhode Island Department of State may be interested in drafting a bylaws document in conjunction with their filing. Although bylaws are not required by Rhode Island  for filing, and thus, if drafted, will remain internal to your organization, we recommend that one be drafted and signed regardless as it is this document which will delineate the rules and regulations which you wish your corporation to run by. We have below a bylaws template, available in both PDF and MS Word formatting, which you can use to draft your own bylaws, free of charge.
