The young men's Christian association in this state may unite and constitute the state young men's Christian association for the supervision and conduct of its work in the state. The associations affiliated with the state association, through their representatives, may make such rules as they consider necessary, choose such officers as they determine, and delegate such duties as they desire to delegate, for the conduct of the work in the state, to a state committee to be chosen as the state association decides.
The state association may incorporate under, and exercise the privileges granted by, sections 1715.23 to 1715.27 of the Revised Code. When so incorporated it may receive young men's Christian associations into affiliation and may pass upon all applications for the incorporation of such associations, causing to be affixed to each such application a certificate of its approval.
Every such affiliated association shall file with the state association a copy of its constitution and rules and annually thereafter shall file a copy of any changes therein, together with a schedule of its property, a financial statement, and such report of its activity as the state association determines.
