UC Berkeley requires all alumni chapters to have bylaws. The Alumni Relations office will provide you with UCB-approved bylaws to update for your chapter.

If you apply for a bank account or an alcohol permit, you will need to submit a copy of the chapter’s bylaws. For this reason, assure that your bylaws mention that your chapter is an “alumni constituency group” of UC Berkeley and, under the domain of the UC Regents, that the chapter has tax-exempt status.
