  1. The way I read the provision, it is not automatic because of the words "shall have the option". It may not require a vote, but it seems to me that such directors who wish to become a "director exempt" would need to so indicate and this be recorded in the minutes.
  2. I don't think so. Even if this could be done, what would it mean?
  3. It seems the key here may be whether previous notice is/was given. With previous notice, just a majority vote needed. [UNLESS there are overriding denominational rules/procedures, etc.].
  4. When the term is up, presumably there is an election to elect the person to fill that spot.
  5. If your organization is an approved 501c3 public charity, what do/did you have (as far as the organization) as the details of the organization when it was approved for that status?
  6. I am a member and official of an organization and we have the following provision in our Bylaws: Attendance and removal. If a director or ..., if applicable, fails to attend regular meetings of the board or ..., respectively, for 3 consecutive months, or 4 meetings within a calendar year, or otherwise fails to perform any of the duties as a director or a ..., the office may be declared vacant by the board and the vacancy filled as provided in the bylaws.
  7. I suggest that Club President should have known what motions are and are not in order at the annual meeting of members, or should have had a resource available to consult at the time. Be ready for next year and following years.
  8. One (of many) great mysteries of organizations is the attraction to making a "past president" and/or "immediate past president" an automatic official of an organization. Despite (to me, at least) the obvious problems of doing so, it is done commonly.
  9. If this tie vote was on a motion, then the motion is defeated - the same result as if the vote was overwhelmingly opposed.
  10. I suppose what you might do is for the current President to resign or be removed from office and then he/she would immediately become the "Immediate Past President". Problem solved!!
  11. Unless you have some very unusual Bylaws, only Board members can present motions at a Board meeting.
  12. I would make an analogy of the difference between something "approved" and something "not disapproved". Say, for example, as a parent you might tell your teen daughter she can only date someone that you have "approved". That is probably a higher standard than telling her that can date anyone that you have not disapproved.
  13. It seems to me that if each member voted for three candidates, then it seems unlikely that only one candidate would achieve a majority of the votes cast.
  14. Are you sure that the statutory requirement is a majority of those present or a majority of those present and voting. The latter is the RONR requirement.
  15. It also seems to me you have a potential problem with a one year term for Immediate Past President. If the President resigns one day into his/her term, then he/she becomes the Immediate Past President. The previous Immediate Past President served in that office for one day.
