Bylaw Amendments
Amendment. The voting requirements for membership approval of bylaw amendments and restatements are normally found in an association's bylaws. In the event the bylaws fail to include an amendment provision, they may be amended by a majority of those members voting once a quorum has been established. (Corp. Code §7150(b).) Certain elements of the bylaws may be amended by the board, other elements require membership approval. (Corp. Code §7150.)

Effective Upon Notice. Bylaw amendments and bylaw restatements are effective upon notice to the membership. Unlike CC&R amendments, bylaw amendments do not need to be filed with the state, or recorded, or signed to be effective.
