About Alexis Hunt

  1. Board qualifications

    The only way they could do this is to change the qualifications again, through whatever process is required for that, presumably an amendment approved by your voting council. You cannot approve one-off exceptions (although you could write a one-off exception into the qualifications).
  2. Did not accept resignation, but moved on

    I'd also throw in that you can only appoint people temporarily if your rules provide for it. If they don't, then: When a vacancy is filled, the new officer serves for the remainder of the current term. There is no "temporary" apoointment. The right to accept a resignation goes with the right to fill the resulting vacancy. So if only the membership can appoint a replacement, then only the membership can accept the resignation.
  3. Resigned board member

    To clarify a bit more: the Board is a separate assembly and has its own membership. A member right to attend meetings and make motions only extends to assemblies of which they are a member. So if Mr. X is not a member of the Board any more, then, except as your rules might provide, he has no rights at all at a Board meeting any more than a nonmember of the association does.
  4. Special Meeting

    And if they (or applicable statute) does not provide for special meetings, you cannot have them.
  5. Suspension of write-in prohibition

    I suspect that Mr. Katz's organization is not a political party, but they also tend to have such rules.
  6. setting precedent

    It may also be a good practice for the board to ratify the actions that were taken so as to clearly say that they are approved of, and protect the agents from being accused of having acted without authority.
  7. Limiting Q&A during Reports of Officers

    Do you have a link?
  8. setting precedent

    Any actions taken that contradict the bylaws are null and void, no matter how it has been. A point of order can be made about this at any time. If the members wish to keep the current practice, they should amend the bylaws to permit it.
  9. board director

    Yes. A decision is effective as soon as it is adopted (unless it says otherwise). The minutes are an official record but are not required for the decisions to be effective.
  10. Indeed, but as Joshua Katz said, they could simply vote against taking it up.
  11. Limiting Q&A during Reports of Officers

    A *Call for the Orders of the Day* would be not be proper. Assuming that the officer's report is happening at the usual place in the agenda, then none of the grounds set out on p. 220 ll. 30-35 are met.
  12. Quorum Defined; Physical or Virtual?

    That said, there is nothing wrong with having the third trustee present remotely by phone or video conference, just that he will not count as present. So he cannot count for quorum (the other two must be present), cannot vote, etc.
  13. Limiting Q&A during Reports of Officers

    A 2/3rds vote on a motion to suspend the rules would also be sufficient to order that the assembly move on.
  14. General Order Set for Unfinished Business

    If it is before that time, no. The motion is still postponed.
