Updated May 31, 2022

Iowa corporate bylaws define the internal rules of a corporate business entity and are adopted by the board of directors after articles of incorporation have been filed with the Secretary of State. The bylaws must be drafted into a legal document by the directors and kept at the executive office. In most cases, the issuance of shares, the appointment of corporate management, and the schedule of shareholder meetings will be included in the bylaws. Once the document has been drafted, it can be amended or added to at any time.

Required in Indiana?  Yes (§ 490.206(1))
