A corporate bylaw is a binding agreement which states the manner in which the internal affairs of a corporation are to be managed and organized. Because of the complex nature of this document, it is wise to have an attorney assist you when it comes time to draft one of your own. However, in Vermont, the creation of a corporate bylaw is not a necessary step in the formation of a corporation as there is no statute that requires that you to provide this kind of information to the Secretary of State. Instead, the document should be signed by all appropriate parties and kept on file in the principle place of business to be referenced when necessary.
