I have some experince in being on the board for a couple of non-profit orgs
in Sweden , and can provide good examples for bylaws (even a
fill-in-the-blanks-and-elaborate-a-bit bylaw-form) that are specifically for
non-profit organisations. They are in swedish, but it would be trivial to
translate them into english if there is interest.
