Article: 611 Organization, Amendment of Bylaws and Dissolution

NON-PROFIT AND CHARITABLE PURPOSES - As stated in Section 601.2, CCSI is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes and for the purpose of fostering national or international amateur sports competition within the meaning of section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. Notwithstanding any other provision of these Bylaws, CCSI shall not, except to an insubstantial degree, (1) engage in any activities or exercise any powers that are not in furtherance of the purposes and objectives of CCSI or (2) engage in any activities not permitted to be carried on by: (A) a corporation exempt from federal income tax under such section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code or (B) a corporation to which contributions, gifts and bequests are deductible under sections 170(c)(2), 2055(a)(2) and 2522(a)(2) of the IRS Code.

DEDICATION OF ASSETS, ETC. - The revenues, properties and assets of CCSI are irrevocably dedicated to the purposes set forth in Sections 601.2 and 611.1 of these Bylaws. No part of the net earnings, properties or assets of CCSI shall inure to the benefit of any private person or any member, officer or director of CCSI.

AMENDMENTS - Any provision of these Bylaws not mandated by USS may be amended at any meeting of the House of Delegates by a two thirds vote of the members present and voting. Amendments so approved shall not take effect until reviewed and approved by the USS Legislation Sub-committee. These Bylaws shall be deemed amended ninety (90) days after the conclusion of any annual meeting of USS at which the corresponding provisions of Part Six of the USS Code of Rules and Regulations are amended (or such later effective date established in the amending USS legislation) to the extent that such amendment affects a provision required to be included herein or is itself required to be included herein, unless CCSI shall have requested permission of the USS Legislation Sub-committee not to have such amendment take effect with respect to these Bylaws.

DISSOLUTION - CCSI may be dissolved only upon a two-thirds majority vote of all the voting members of the House of Delegates. Upon dissolution, the net assets of CCSI shall not inure to the benefit of any private individual, unincorporated organization or corporation, including any member, officer or director of CCSI, but shall be distributed to United States Swimming, Inc., to be used exclusively for educational or charitable purposes. If United States Swimming, Inc., is not then in existence, or is not then a corporation which is exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code and to which contributions, bequests and gifts are deductible under sections 170(c)(2), 2055(a)(2) and 2522(a)(2) of the IRS Code, the net assets of CCSI shall be distributed to a corporation or other organization meeting those criteria and designated by the House of Delegates at the time of dissolution, to be used exclusively for educational or charitable purposes.
