         A.   The Board of Directors (hereinafter referred to as the Board) 
              shall be selected by the Steering Committee from among the 
              active members of DAWN such that: 
              1.   Each coven shall have no more than one member on the 
                   Board; if there are fewer than 5 member covens, then there 
                   may be a second Director from any coven;  
              2.   There shall be at least one member of the Board who is a 
                   member of a coven; and
              3.   There shall be at least one member on the Board from among 
                   the DAWN members who are not members of any coven.  
         B.   The Board shall have no fewer than 4 members and no more than 
              13 members.  It shall determine its own size within those 
         C.   The Board may appoint members of DAWN to fill vacancies on the 
              Board.  Persons so appointed shall serve only until the next 
              regular election.  
         D.   Each elected Director (member of the Board) holds a two year 
              term, except that, when the size of the board is increased,
              half of the new positions shall initially be for one year only. 
              Any person serving one elected term may not be reelected as a 
              Director until they have been retired from the Board for one 
         E.   Each seated Director may designate an Alternate to speak and 
              vote in their stead when they are absent from Board meetings.  
              The identity of this Alternate shall be recorded in the Minutes 
              of the Board, and no other person may serve this function until 
              the Director changes the designation and the change is on 
              record.  Being named Alternate to a Director  does not 
              automatically name them  Alternate to any offices that director 
              may hold; however, they may so serve at the discretion of the 
         F.   The Board shall elect Officers from among the Directors for the 
              positions of Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer.  This 
              shall be done after each new election, and no later than the 
              next regular meeting of the Board.  
         G.   A quorum of the Board shall consist of 70 percent of the 
              Directors, either present or represented by their Alternate.  
         H.   The Secretary may appoint, from the general membership of DAWN, 
              with the approval of the Board, persons to fill any or all of 
              the following offices:
              a.   Recording Secretary,
              b.   Membership Secretary, and
              c.   Corresponding Secretary.
              These officers serve at the will of the Board and report
              directly to the Secretary.


         I.   The Board shall meet regularly, at least four times per year,
              at a time and place to be fixed by the Board. Additionally, The
              Chair or any two Directors may call a Board meeting upon giving
              at least 7 days notice to all Directors by U.S. Mail, or upon
              at least 2 days notice given by telegram.  Said notice will be
              deemed delivered when deposited in the U.S. Mail with the last
              known address of the Director and proper postage thereon
              prepaid, or when the given to the telegram company.  Any
              Director may waive notice of any meeting.  The attendance of a
              Director at any meeting shall constitute a waiver of notice,
              except when the Director attends the meeting for the express
              purpose of objecting to the transaction of business because the
              meeting has not been lawfully called or convened.  The notice
              of meeting need only contain the date, time, and place of the

              method of choosing a coven representative is left to the 
              discretion of the individual coven.  A method for choosing 
              representation for Solitaries will be determined by said 
              Solitaries, subject to approval by the Board.  There shall be 
              at least one (1) representative of the Solitaries, who is not a

              committee.  A quorum for other business shall be a majority of 
              the Committee.  
         E.   Steering Committee members will not have alternates.    
         F.   The Steering Committee may make rules to govern the conduct of 
              its own meetings.
         G.   Decisions made by the Steering Committee shall be referred to 
              the Board for action, except as otherwise provided for in these 
         H.   Any recommendation that dues be levied or changed must receive 
              at least two-thirds (2/3) of the votes cast by the Steering 
              Committee, ten (10) days notice having been given that dues 
              will be discussed.

              meeting of that body for approval.


         In order to amend this document, the proposed change must receive 
    the votes of at least two-thirds of the Directors and must receive at 
    least two-thirds of the votes cast at a proper meeting of the Steering 
    Committee,  both bodies having received at least 20 days notice of the 
    proposed amendment.  

         On the second Sunday in October, The Steering Committee shall meet 
    to hold an election.  At this time, the Steering Committee will elect 
    replacements for Directors whose term is expiring.  Names will be taken 
    in nomination, consent obtained from those nominated, and one ballot 
    cast.  Each Committee member, including retiring and interim Directors, 
    shall have as many votes as there are vacancies.  The qualified candidate 
    with the most votes will fill the first vacancy - two year terms being
    filled first.  As each vacancy is filled, members of the successful 
    candidate's coven are stricken from the list.  If only one vacancy 
    remains and either part I.A.2 or part I.A.3 of the Bylaws has not been 
    fulfilled, then only those candidates who meet the criterion can be 
    selected; otherwise, the position will remain vacant to be filled by the 
    Board, as soon as possible, by appointment.  If a tie exists between 
    equally qualified candidates, where all may not serve, a runoff election
    shall be held between those candidates.  Misspellings shall not
    invalidate ballots where the appropriate person can be discerned; nor 
    shall voting for fewer than the number of vacancies.  Voting for too many 
    candidates shall invalidate that ballot.  No individual shall vote more 
    than one time for the same person;  therefore duplicate names on a single 
    ballot shall count as only one vote.  All elected persons take office at 
    the first meeting in November.
