Our organization's bylaws relies on Robert's Rules of Order in areas that our bylaws lack. They certainly lack in this area. We have a small group(12-15) active members in our group. We have heard rumors that a group of people are going to get enough to make a majority to join, in order to make a motion and get passed, sweeping changes that the current active group is strongly opposed to. Currently our bylaws state that you must attend 6 meetings in a rolling calendar year to have a vote on anything. We can see this group doing this to get what they want. Is there anything our current group can do to prevent this from happening? We thought about making an amendment to the bylaws that motions to these specific changes can only be brought by individuals who have been members 18 months. We don't think they would be that dedicated. Is this possible? Or is there a better solution?
