Keep the Constitution simple and flexible. What can help is to have three levels of club "law" -- the constitution, by-laws, and policy/rules. The constitution should create these two other levels and how they are set what each by-laws and policy covers. This seems over complicated but it simplifies it as usually it takes more effort and University involvement to admendent the consitution and who wants to do that over library lending rights.


level...................set by..............Quorum...............Passed by
rules...................Board................majority...............majority
By-law................membership......1/3 to majority....majority
Constitution.......membership.......majority+...........supermajority

rules should cover library lending, dues if any, etc.

by-laws fills in the framework of the constitution. For example, the constitution may indicate that additional offices maybe created then the bylaws would be adopted with the additional officer positions and duties.
