  1. What exactly are you trying to challenge? The daughter's role as attorney or the father's rights as a member?
  2. I will point out that before the question is stated by the Chair a member can offer an amendment that is solely up to the maker to accept or decline in addition to the maker changing it themselves as Richard points out..
  3. One the question is stated, the motion belongs to the assembly and the maker of the motion does not have veto power over the amendment.
  4. I think that is immaterial. If the bylaws only provide for termination of membership for non-payment and then we go to RONR, I believe the case as stated by the OP did not follow Chapter XX.
  5. If it is a continuing breach, any member can raise a Point of Order. Looking at p 241 I would say it is as a main motion in conflict with the bylaws. Since it will probably be ruled not well-taken be ready to Appeal. If your Point is ignored, raise it to the Assembly. If the will of the assembly is to take the Point well-taken and the board refuses to follow through start discussing discipline (Chapter XX). ETA: I started typing before Joshua's reply came up.
  6. Side note: You may want to read up on Arrow's Impossibility Theorem. It covers some of the mathematics associated with voting issues as you describe.
  7. In such a case, the member can address the Point and Appeal directly to the assembly. p 650-651
  8. Go back in time and make a timely Point of Order. Since it is not a continuing breach it would be too late now to correct it using that method. So now if you want those amendments put back it, it would have to be revoted on via Amend Something Previously Adopted. As a note, the people that would vote on that amendment would be those present when the motion is made, not those who voted on it originally.
  9. My thought was, if amendments can only go through the Bylaw Committee and that committee is free to disregard any proposed amendment that they in effect can veto any and all proposed Bylaw changes. I think Richard was pointing out that a member should be able to get an amendment proposed to the membership even if the committee wants to block it.
  10. And remember even if the President shouldn't vote, if they are a member of the assembly they always have the right to vote.
  11. Since those situations had already been dealt with in the thread, I was imagining the all-too frequent occurrence when the Chair doesn't like the way the meeting is going so they declare the meeting is adjourned and walk out.
  12. Nope. And if he leave the members elect a Chair pro tem.
  13. Didn't we handle this same question a little while back and we were split with some (me included) saying it was when the vote was announced and other saying it was when the Chair announced the motion adopted? IIRC that question was if there were enough votes to pass but no announcement then was the motion adopted.
  14. Dr.

    Greg, wouldn't it be at least half of the body wishing to stay in executive session be sufficient since it takes a majority to move out of executive session? This is an honest question since RONR seems silent on how a body goes beck into an open session.
