  2. I am try to find this section. Could you please help me to find it?
  3. I want to thank everyone that responded. This is a big help!!
  4. Please post your question as a new topic.
  5. Assuming the motion in question was validly adopted by the board by exercising its authority to act on behalf of the society, the situation is the same as if the society itself had adopted the motion. The procedure to overturn the motion is to adopt a motion to Rescind and it has the same voting requirements as it would if the motion was adopted by the society itself. If an organization wishes to adopt rules which make it easier to overturn decisions adopted by its subordinate board, it is free to do so, but the rule in RONR is clear.

    Removal from Office

    The governing documents of an organization does not specifically state the removal procedure of an elected officer. The organization adheres to RRONR in such matters. Is the voting body that elected the officer the only authority to remove one of its elected officers? What importance and rights does the officer have when elected as vice-president president-elect?
  7. I would say 35:2 (#7) "The same vote is required for the assembly to rescind or amend an action taken by subordinate bodies, such as some executive boards, empowered to act on behalf of the assembly."
  8. Well, Official Interpretation 2006-13 by the authorship team addresses this question and says exactly what Mr. Martin said. https://robertsrules.com/official-interpretations/
  9. I am not entirely sure about this. The reason is that the original motion is the board's motion and not any motion by the assembly. Had the motion in question been adopted by the assembly rather than the board then Mr. Martin's observation would have sufficed for me. Declaring the board's motion to be null, although similar to the motion to Rescind, would be a regular main motion requiring only a majority vote without notice. However, I am willing to be persuaded otherwise.
  10. This topic is eight years old...just saying. 😊
  11. Yes, the board certainly could seek input from the association's membership, and then choose to elect a person based upon that input.
  12. Is it invalid for the board to (effectively) send the vote to the full assembly if they can't reach an amicable solution? Obviously the board would have to do the actual appointment, but it would seem to me that they could easily vote to abide by the wishes of the assembly.
  13. At this point, since we are already answering her question, there is no point starting a new topic. My request to her, since there had already been an answer to her question, is to please start a new topic NEXT TIME she has a question. If she starts a new topic now, she will have two threads going on the same issue. The request to start a new topic should be made before people start answering. Her question was simple and has been answered with answers straight out of RONR.
  14. Please start a new topic, but no the president does not get an extra vote (and I do think you missed some other rules as well)
  15. Guest Cheryl, this thread is six years old. In the future, please ask you questions by starting a new topic, even if it seems to fit in with an old conversation. To answer your question, the remaining board members keep voting until someone changes a vote. As for a couple of alternatives, the board could consider another nominee who might be able to win a majority vote. Finally, the two competing candidates can agree between themselves that they will flip a coin and that the loser will withdraw. Doing that has to be purely voluntary on the part of the candidates, however. They cannot be
  16. Unless the bylaws provide otherwise, you re-vote until there's a winner. Nobody gets the ability to cast extra votes due to a tie, but if there's a deadlock that won't break it might be wise to have some conversations about the reasons for the deadlock. Depending on your bylaws, they could also potentially decide to delegate the vote to the main assembly.
  17. What happens when a board member resigns and now the board is split 2 to 2 who they want asa replacement . Does the president of the hoa have another vote ? How does this get resolved?
  18. A motion to Rescind can be adopted by any of the following: 1) A majority vote, if previous notice has been given of the motion either orally at the previous regular meeting or in writing in the call of the meeting. 2) A 2/3 vote. 3) A vote of a majority of the entire membership.
  19. Hi!! We are a small Club with 450 voting members. The Board of 9 has passed a motion. At the Clubs General meeting this motion could be over turned. So my question is, how many votes from the floor are needed? Majority or 2/3 thirds? Thank you!!!
  20. First, if there are only eight voting members then this is a small board and the rules that apply to a small board would apply. Under those rules, the chair can participate in debate and vote. Secondly, you tell us that So I am wondering why you want to change things. The rules should serve the organization's needs, rather than the organization adapting itself to serve a particular set of rules. (I can see a desire to protect from a chair who's "gone rogue" and acts dictatorially, but there are already procedures to deal with that). I will note that there is no need to break
  21. Did you by chance intend to say the rules may be suspended to permit a nonmember to enter debate?
