Bylaw waived

2 posts in this topic

Our club has a bylaw that states that the club will not enter into a contract for services rendered by a member, if the contract amount is over $3,500. At a regular meeting a member asked that the by law be waived so as he could bid on the contract at hand.. The attending members considered it and took a vote and let him bid and win the contract. I say this was wrong and basically illegal in relationship to our bylaws which require a notice of change or amendment to our bylaws.  Any thoughts??

Such a rule is not in the nature of a rule of order and cannot be suspended, therefore the adopted motion is null and void and a point of order should be raised at your next meeting.  RONR (11th ed.), p. 251 (a).   The bylaw must be amended if they want to allow this in the future.
