Does the president count towards a quorum

6 posts in this topic

What do the bylaws say regarding what constitutes a quorum?  Also, is the President a member of the body which is meeting?

Yes, if he's a member of the group that is meeting. 

It is the number of members present that are counted for purposes of determining the presence of a quorum.

The question then becomes, is he a member, and the answer is yes, he is a member if he is entitled to make motions, to speak in debate, and to vote. If presiding, perhaps he shouldn't do these things, but that does not mean that he is not entitled to do so.

And he (or she) is entitled to attend the meeting, as well, and should definitely do that while presiding. ?
