The Code of Ethics was added for the first time in the 1990 Membership Directory. It is a separate document from the Constitution.

Another observation: The first MAJOR revision to the Constitution appears to have occurred in 1982 because in the 1982 Directory the Constitution continues to have only nine (IX) sections and take up only one page even though a cursory review shows that there were a few slight "tweaks" to the Constitution over the years between 1966 and 1982.

In the 1983 Directory, the Constitution (as amended through the July 1, 1982 Delegates Meeting) grew to sixteen (XVI) sections and two and a half pages of tiny print (probably roughly equivalent to the seven pages in the 2011 Directory with larger print). I think this version probably has the same overall look and feel as the 2011 version, but I know there were more "tweaks" between 1983 and 2011.

Even though the original 1964 Constitution mentions that Bylaws may be adopted by the Board of Trustees, the Bylaws have never been included in the Membership Directory. In the 1988 & 1989 Directories, the section was called "WBCCI Constitution and Bylaws", but it actually only contained the Constitution.

Another interesting discovery is that there was no Constitution included in the 1991 and 1992 Membership Directories, but the Constitution did return in the 1993 Directory. The length of the Constitution in the Membership Directory changed as follows over the years:
  • 1964-82: One page long, tiny font
  • 1983-87: Three pages long, small font
  • 1988: Four pages long, slightly small font
  • 1989: Five pages long, slightly small font
  • 1990 & 1993-2009: Six pages long, current standard font size
  • 2010-11: Seven pages long, current standard font size
Some of the length increase has to do with larger font sizes being used, but some also was likely due to content changes.

I wonder if some of those changes revolved around the IRS ruling.

Any idea what the year of that ruling was?

Sorry, I know nothing about any IRS ruling that affected WBCCI.
