The Society’s membership approved the updated bylaws at our program meeting on March 19, 2023. The bylaws have been updated to make them better reflect the Bedford Historical Society of today.  We’ve eliminated the Executive Committee, given that the whole Board of Directors must be involved in our Society’s major decisions; we’ve largely eliminated the definition of committees from the bylaws while enumerating four standing committees that must exist; we have made the number of the Society’s Directors more flexible so that we can more readily adjust to arising or changing needs; and we’ve decided that while the membership continues to elect the Directors, as it legally must, the Directors should elect the officers.

Thank you to the hard-working committee that produced these bylaws and to the membership for your support!
