  1. What are these "guidelines" of which you speak? Bylaws? Standing rules? Custom? Some manual an old-time member wrote?
  2. So being pedantic, wouldn't the motion to suspend the rules only require a majority of those present, not a 2/3 vote?
  3. But according to their bylaws, wouldn't THAT vote only require a majority vote.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. ranking of new board members

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

    I would say that with the lack of nomination to have a vote by ballot and whoever wins, wins.
  13. Joshua, I have noticed the same thing and coincidently putting together a training for a group for which I have been parliamentarian. Anyone who has a chance to compare a meeting without "formalism" with one that has it would never again go back to the anarchy of a meeting without parliamentary law.
  14. Closed Sessions

    Whisper the motion.
  15. Closed Sessions

    Can it be amended or qualified to be "I move to go into executive session to discuss the surprise party for Billy." and thus automatically resume the regular session once that topic is disposed of?
