Who needs to approve corporate bylaws?

Although federal law does not require specific language in most organizations’ bylaws, some states require that bylaws be filed at the time of incorporation or shortly thereafter. In most states, corporate bylaws are simply approved by the board of directors at the first board meeting. The board approves subsequent amendments of the bylaws according to the procedures stated in the bylaws.
