Bylaws

In 2020, the Mac-Grove community voted on three potential bylaw changes that were first approved by the full Board of Directors. 

Approved bylaw changes are those that received a “yes” vote by the majority of Macalester-Groveland community members who could vote, and went into effect on August 28th, 2020. Unapproved bylaw changes are those that received a “no” vote by the majority of Macalester-Groveland community members who could vote and did not go into effect.
