Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws
On this page you will find sample articles of incorporation and by-laws. Some of the documents can be opened here, while others can be found on web sites of New Horizons groups that have made their organizations’ documents available for others to see.
The requirements for a Certificate of Incorporation and/or By-Laws will differ for each state. The samples for the Certificate of Incorporation and By-Laws are being provided only as examples of ideas that each group thought to be suitable for their individual purposes and/or needs. Other examples and/or forms for both the Certificate of Incorporation and By-Laws can be found on the Internet or in your local book store. NHIMA does not take legal responsibility for any of these samples and wishes to make it clear that NHIMA in no way is offering legal advice. We urge that each group consult with a legal advisor which, despite a short term cost, will provide long term benefits.
[Note: Some of these documents are large (> 7MB). If using dial-up, it could take a very long time to download the documents.]
