A: Religious colleges in Fort Washington, Maryland, can create separate bylaws from their articles of incorporation. To do this, they should review their current bylaws, form a committee of key stakeholders, draft the new bylaws, and seek legal counsel for compliance. Once approved by the governing body, the bylaws should be implemented, and stakeholders informed. Regular reviews and potential revisions should also be established. Consulting legal counsel experienced in nonprofit and religious institutions is advised to ensure compliant and culturally sensitive bylaws.
