ASUAF Bylaws

        This document is the longest and often the most confusing of the four. It essentially expands upon the Constitution into great detail, defining all the committees, councils, assemblies and departments of ASUAF along with the powers and duties of all related positions of leadership. The bylaws also include the financial process.

        The Bylaws contain a very handy list of vocabulary and definitions (010) used not only in the majority of the governing documents, but also in Senate meetings. These terms are critical to know.

        The Bylaws also comprehensively contain the powers and duties of the Senate as a whole, and the individual Senator. This is a must-read for understanding your duties, responsibilities and powers.
