(2) The bylaws may contain any provision for managing and regulating the affairs of the corporation that is consistent with law and the articles of incorporation.

(3) Except with respect to a corporation’s articles of incorporation, provisions in the bylaws control provisions in any other document for managing or regulating the affairs of the corporation.
