HAMLET — An organization is in the infant stages of being formed, but immediately those in charge notice there is a need for order as well as guidelines. What they need are bylaws that will give the members and/or board of directors guidance on how to efficiently and effectively make decisions and move forward toward the organization’s purpose and goals.

Attendees will learn this and more at the ByLaws Seminar on Sept. 15 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Cole Auditorium.

This free seminar is being offered by Richmond Community College’s Small Business Center.

Come and join Gypsie Murdaugh, who has been a business owner for more than 25 years and has worked with nonprofit and for-profit companies to organize their organizations to develop by-laws that uphold the mission or purpose of the organization, as well as give guidance to officer elections, committee standings and other important areas concerning how to proceed in running a business, especially a non-profit.

Murdaugh will help business owners better understand the need for bylaws and the various components that must be in bylaws. When you complete this seminar, they will be able to develop their own bylaws and move their businesses to a new level of professionalism, organizers say.

This seminar is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is recommended, but walk-ins are welcome. For questions or to pre-register for this seminar, visit or contact Small Business Center Director Deborah Hardison at 910-410-1687 or

Wylie D. Bell is director of marketing and communications for Richmond Community College.
