  1. Happy to have achieved my PRP status.

  2. Hi Dan...I can't find the email your sent to me the other day. Could I have you resend them? You have my email. Lori Lukinuk

  3. is studying hard for the CP exam. Lots to learn.

  4. I've advised a board to wait until I hear an answer back on this question before they proceed. Can a board use the motion to rescind to replace a chair that they no longer like? The chair is elected each December and the board would now like to rescind that vote and elect a new chair.
  5. Thank you. This is helpful. Glad to see movement to the 21st Century. I'll keep watch to see what other possibilities develop.
  6. My location is an issue for this. There is a Dan Lynch in southern Ontario, in the Waterloo, Ontario area, but that is a 20 hr drive from Thunder Bay. Ontario is a huge province. I am presently a NAP MAL. I would like to join a unit, but not sure what that would gain me. While face-to-face interaction is optimal, here in T.Bay we have been able to utilize 21 century technology in a big way to hold meetings very effectively. Video conferencing, Adobe connect, and even Skype are useful tools. Are there any units out there using techonogy to hold meetings? Are there any PRPs out there who are capable of holding workshops using such technology? If the answer is no to either question....someone should figure it out as there could be a huge market for such a thing. My strength is the book knowledge of RONR....my weakness is actual presiding....I need to find a way to practice. Just reading scripts isn't going to do it. I do know some folks who call themselves parliamentarians in my area. Quite frankly though....they're not!!! Even I can tell that. Sorry, this may not be a topic for this discussion forum and I won't waste anymore of folks airtime with it, but if there are any technologically savy PRPs out there I'd love to hear from them.
  7. Anyone have advice on how to prepare for the Professional Qualification Course to become a PRP. A little information....I am somewhat isolated(geographically) and have limited opportunity to practice presiding. I fully intend on doing this somehow....just need to find a way to make it happen. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  8. We've had the situation where a member moves a motion, argues against it, then abstains from voting. This is on a publicly elected board.
  9. Thank you. I suspected there was a problem with this. Thought I would go to the site where people should know.
  10. This was sent to me....does anyone know if it is correct? Interesting Trivia: In the late 1700's, many houses consisted of a large room with only one chair. Commonly, a long wide board folded down from the wall, and was used for dining. The 'head of the household' always sat in the chair while everyone else ate sitting on the floor.. Occasionally a guest, who was usually a man, would be invited to sit in this chair during a meal. To sit in the chair meant you were important and in charge. They called the one sitting in the chair the 'chair man.' Today in business, we use the expression or title 'Chairman' or 'Chairman of the Board.' We have moved from Chairman to Chair or Chairperson.
  11. All should understand that reading RONR doesn't make one an expert. One of the most important atributes of the chair is the ability to preside. In saying that actually reading the book and understanding what is being said is a positive. The chair should be encouraged to increase his knowledge while the "expert" should be encouraged to work on a collegial relationship to increase the knowledge of the entire board without antagonizing everyone.
  12. Intended as a compliment. If you ever get a chance to travel the Maritime Provinces....Ontario has some great sites,...but Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail and the whole of Nova Scotia experience can't be beat.
  13. Thank you...hope to work towards a CP from AIP and hopefully the PRP from NAP. Hard part is finding the time to get at it.
  14. This is how I interpret what should have happened. I also know that this particular Board follows its bylaws only when it is convenient to do so. I undertand why the objector did not appeal as he has done this before with no success and no seconder. After the meeting one other member stated to the objector that he was correct and 3/4 vote should have been required to amend the by-laws, but he didn't know about the previous notice part. Obviously this member had never read the by-laws in the first place and didn't really know what he was voting for.
