  1. Hi, 1. We are a teachers union, when we have district wide steward meetings should the Executive Board Sit up front behind/to the side of the speaker? 2. We do not have a Sargent of Arms and do we need one to make sure ONLY Stewards show up at the meetings and not just any one, including members? 3. How does one become an Official Parliamentarian? 4. How do we have one or find an Official Parliamentarian to come to our meetings on a regular basis since this process is new to us? Some people are abusing Rules of Roberts Order (they only go by what the book says as per their decis
  2. 1. A Member on the Executive Board filled a complaint upon a member while this member was running for the Executive Board. The Election Committee met regarding the complaint.

We have accepted proxies for the past 10 plus years, we now have an issue with a committee who is interpreting Roberts Rules of Order as we can not use proxy voting while others believes that they are accptable because of past precedents. Who is correct? Also if we want to not accept proxies, do we need a vote by the committee with a quarum or can the chair person of that committee send out an email letting the members know that proxies will no longer be accepted?
