Staff Council meetings are run by Robert's Rules of Order and governed by bylaws written in 2010 after COPE and CEC combined as one unit. The bylaws have been modified and we are currently using the 2018 version.

The Bylaws Committee role is to keep the bylaws and legislative regulation for staff council current and updated.
