My club the Manty Malters (of Manitowoc, WI) basically plagiarized the Falcons' constitution and bylaws a couple of years ago. Since we were already doing most of the stuff in it, the club didn't change all that much as a result. If you are newly adopting some things within it then things will change more. For the good or bad, who's to say. Personally, I prefer social aspects and think we have way too much business at our meetings -- it takes friggin 90 minutes to get through all the business. I'd prefer to have a 20-minute business meeting and set committees to work on the finer details. But I'm not the Pres and I never want to be, so I guess it is what it is. Each club has its own dynamic and quirks, and that's fine. It's always a great idea to visit neighboring clubs to see what ideas you can steal from them, including ways to improve or maybe even to scale back if your club is overly social or business or whatever.
