Agritourism South Africa is governed in accordance with the Nonprofit Organization Act, 1997 of South Africa as a Non-Profit Company with Members.
What is a constitution for a non profit organization?
A constitution for a nonprofit organization is very similar to the bylaws that govern the actions of its board of directors. Like bylaws, the constitution depicts the rules by which the entity will operate and the restrictions, powers, and duties of its officers and board members.
