  1. If a woman I assume this extends to "Ms Chairwoman"?
  2. Absentee Ballot

    A member that chooses to be absent do not have their "right to debate" taken away or as you put it "not allow[ed]". They willingly give up that right by not attending.
  3. ByLaw Interpretation

    I think there are other issues. "Special meetings may be conducted via email as long as the topic consists SOLELY of A spending issue." So even if this is solely a spending issue then who has authority to call the special meeting? The President? A petition of a majority of the members? The group of 3? Secondly, the OP mentions the meeting was tabled and depending on the motion it may have been erroneously tabled or merely postponed. If it were postponed until the next regular meeting, would it be in order to take up the motion at a special meeting for any reason such as amendment or debate or vote?
  4. What are these "guidelines" of which you speak? Bylaws? Standing rules? Custom? Some manual an old-time member wrote?
  5. So being pedantic, wouldn't the motion to suspend the rules only require a majority of those present, not a 2/3 vote?
  6. But according to their bylaws, wouldn't THAT vote only require a majority vote.
  7. Special Meeting

    As far as RONR is concerned, any matter can be discuseed at a special meeting as long as it does does not violate the bylaws. The trick is that the special meeting is limited to discussion of those items in the notice of the meeting.
  8. Dealing with an Executive Committee

    Are you a member of the executive committee? If so you could make a motion there and see what happens.
  9. Power of the HOA

    The only parliamentary issue is they cannot ban you from HOA meetings if you are a member unless you have been disciplined or the bylaws give them that power.
  10. BOD Elections

    So in essence a Nominating Committee could force a member to be a nominee by nominating someone and the nominee not able to withdraw their nomination? If this is true, then how can someone withdraw as referenced to in RONR. Would they need to have a motion to withdraw them from the nomination list if the committee refuses to take them off?
  11. amendment

    That's what I meant. SOrry for being confusing myself add in "before the assembly" to the end of my post. Bottom line is that there cannot be 2 amendments of the first degree unresolved simultaneously.
  12. amendment

    Technically this is incorrect. You cannot have 2 amendments to the main motion. You may have have 1 amendment to the main motion and 1 (secondary) amendment to the amendment.
  13. Correspondence to Pres. not submitted to BOT

    I think the only question would be how to phrase it as a main motion to force the letter out and then another motion to take (whatever) action to follow up on it. Seems pretty cut and dried.
  14. ranking of new board members

    Do you mean in terms of seniority
  15. "Presidential" Nominations

    I would say that with the lack of nomination to have a vote by ballot and whoever wins, wins.
