Recused Member In Minutes

6 posts in this topic

How is a recused member listed in the minutes? The member agreed to recuse herself due to a conflict of interest. Should she be listed as Absent (recused) or Absent (excused) or is there another official way?

Recusal is not a concept found in RONR.

If you record members' attendance in the minutes (and there is no requirement in RONR that you do so), record him as "absent" if he was absent (or, you guessed it, "present" if he was present). No excuses.

Guest Suzan,

I'm curious why you think (incorrectly) that a member should recuse himself? Not only is this unsupport in RONR, but it sounds like you more than have a misunderstanding of recusal, but it sounds very odd.

Why do you and this member think "recusal" is necessary?

Do some members disagree with a position the "recused" member has taken?

When a person recuses themselves - is it necessary to give a reason for recusal and for that reason to be documented in the minutes?

No.
