What are the bylaws for an Oklahoma corporation?

How do the people who run the corporation (directors, officers) figure out what the rules of an Oklahoma corporation are? 

One source of this information is the Oklahoma corporation’s bylaws.  According to Ms. Merriam-Webster, bylaws are defined as “a rule adopted by an organization chiefly for the government of its members and the regulation of its affairs.”

The bylaws are the corporation’s constitutional documents that among other things, may contain provisions relating to the business of the corporation, the conduct of its affairs, and its rights or powers or the rights or powers of its shareholders, directors, officers or employees.  Title 18 O.S. section 2013

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Cazes Roberts, PLLC in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with wife Amy and my two children, Sam (17) and David (9). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
