MOU Revision Proposal

Monday, August 18, 2014

In 2013, the California Urban Water Conservation Council’s (CUWCC) Board of Directors established a Bylaws Committee to review the MOU Bylaws. The goals of the Committee were to:

  • Ensure the Bylaws were in full compliance with California non-profit corporation law; and
