I have been reading HOA/COA laws nationwide for many years, including those sections pertaining to amendments of governing documents such as bylaws.
The only “input” from the state of which I can think is rather passive. For example, the North Carolina Planned Community Act Chapter 47F (a statute) requires the bylaws to provide:
(1) The number of members of the executive board and the titles of the officers of the association;
(2) Election by the executive board of officers of the association;
(3) The qualifications, powers and duties, terms of office, and manner of electing and removing executive board members and officers and filling vacancies;
(4) Which, if any, of its powers the executive board or officers may delegate to other persons or to a managing agent;
(5) Which of its officers may prepare, execute, certify, and record amendments to the declaration on behalf of the association; and
(6) The method of amending the bylaws.
If you describe the specific change being sought, I might have more to say. Also please indicate (1) which HOA/COA statute applies to your HOA and (2) whether your HOA is a corporation.
