  1. If your bylaws provide for special meetings, those detail should be specified in the bylaws. And if the bylaws do not provide for special meetings, then you can't have them at all. And if the bylaws provided for special meetings but (unwisely) fail to include those details, then the notice "must be sent to all members a reasonable number of days in advance." RONR (12th ed.) 9:13.
  2. I agree. But since that's not what happened, the officer is still on the board.
  3. Amounts of money are probably the most obvious examples; but they are just that, examples. They are by no means exhaustive, and I think it would not be possible to provide an exhaustive list. But if I understand you correctly, no change at all originally was proposed to the vote threshold. In that event, any change to that provision (arguably even changing "25%" to "twenty-five percent") would not be in order, due to absence of timely notice.
  4. I concur with my colleague Mr. Mervosh. The motion to keep the officer was not in order. But even if it was, a requirement for a two-thirds vote to remove an officer certainly does not equate to a two-thirds vote requirement to keep him.
  5. No. No one is an ex-officio member unless the bylaws make them one. He has no role at all unless the bylaws make him a member. And if they do, he will have whatever role the bylaws specify. If the bylaws make him a member, but don't specify a particular role, he has the same role as any of the other committee members.
  6. Who says they didn't? All we know is that they rejected the request to attach the PowerPoint to the minutes.
  7. I don't know what a "tl;dr versioon" is. But whatever it is, I doubt it is available here.
  8. Thousands of organizations consisting of "humans on planet earth" manage to use RONR very well. If your organization does not, the fault lies not with RONR, but with the members who do not use it to assert their control over the board.
  9. Following up on Mr. Honemann's answer. if a ballot vote is required, or ordered, a member may vote for one, two, or all three. Also, space must be allowed for write-ins.
  10. So far as the rules in RONR are concerned, no. This would be a form of proxy, which is prohibited unless authorized in your bylaws or some higher authority (such as applicable state law).
  11. Yes, I should have pointed out the exception for the nominating committee.
  12. Guest "Trifacto" already has, here. Guest "Interested Party" also may follow that link.
