  1. Hello; My wife and I are on the board of directors for a non profit community theater. we decided to put together a proposal to present to the board about putting on a show in the fall. I as the director, and my wife as the choreographer. In the proposal, we also had a projected budget as well as a preliminary list of folks that were interested in other production positions. One of those folks is also on the board and had expressed initial interest in being our costumer. This person was sick and could not physically be at this meeting. All of the above mentioned production positions are paid positions. There was discussion and a vote. My wife and I were not allowed to vote and had to leave the room while voting took place. The vote went to a 4 to 4 tie. When it was suggested by a board member that the missing member could be contacted via text or call to break this tie, it was quickly squashed and the motion tabled until the next months board meeting. My questions are as follows...According to Roberts Rules... 1. Should my wife and I be told to leave the room during the vote or excluded from the vote due to a conflict of interest? 2. Should the missing board member been able to vote via text or phone call? 3. Does a tie mean that the answer to the proposal should have been no and could not be tabled? 4. Does the missing member being interested in a paying production staff position automatically exempt her from voting if the motion was lawfully tabled until the next meeting? (She will be at the next board meeting) Thank you!
