Neighborhood Association and Neighborhood Coalition Guidelines for Bylaws Updated June 2022

Bylaws are the guiding, binding documents for any neighborhood association or neighborhood coalition. Your bylaws determine the manner and procedure in which your organization should be run. The City of Albuquerque cannot enforce your bylaws or give you legal advice. If you have questions about how to run your association/coalition, or what to do in certain circumstances, our response will often point you back to your bylaws. For this reason, we recommend careful attention to detail when crafting bylaws for the first time or amending existing bylaws.
