KISS Policies

KISS is governed by four sets of laws. Our constitution is primary, and can be found at this link: Kiss 2012 Constitution. The constitution states that we are also governed by FedS rules and ESS rules; this all really filters down through ESS's constitution and policies found at

The fourth and final set of rules is the KISS bylaws. These can be changed by a majority vote of the council rather than requiring a whole Annual General Meeting and ESS approval. KISS's bylaws live here. When they're changed, this page will be updated.
