Rule 28 provides that the Society in general meeting may make, vary and revoke bye-laws for the regulation of the business of the Society. The main purpose of bye-laws is to describe the various routines and guidelines involved in running the Society. However, this is a recent innovation, and drafting of the Bye-Laws is a slow process.
