  1. John-Jack

    A vote without a quorum, when is it in effect?

    Thank you all for your input. I will not let this happen again. I am rather new with Robert's Rules and not always sure of all the ground rules. I am quite sure that the votes in question will be ratified at the next meeting without any problems.
  2. At a recent meeting of our Lions Club, we did not have a quorum. We did, however, vote on a few items. One of our members expressed his opinion (as fact) that if at our next meeting with a quorum present the minutes were accepted, then what was voted upon is actually passed without any further discussion/vote. Is that true, or would each item have to be brought up again and voted upon? I was the moderator.
  3. Our president is an ex officio of all committies. An ad hoc commeettee was formed consisting of 4 members (not counting the ex officio) does he, as ex officio, have the right or privledge to call a meeting of the committee and set the meetings agenda?
  4. Well then, I'll consider this topic closed from my point of view. Again thanks so much to all of you who have participated in this conversation.
  5. However, on reflection, I think it best the he not use this privlege as he could always have another member make the motion if necessary and avoid any uncessary friction that might result if he did make a motion. We'll see what happens, this was only done once (so far).
  6. I'm not sure if this is true. Mr. Harrison made the point by highlighting the following: If the president is a member of the voting body, he or she has exactly the same rights and privileges as all other members have, including the right to make motions, to speak in debate, and to vote on all questions.
  7. Yes, all replys by the guest so far have been by me 'John'. However I have just signed up to be a member of this group as 'John-Jack' as John was already taken. Thanks for all your input so far! In regards to why we have a BOD at all. I'll have to look into the Constitution and By-Laws. That will be another conversation, perhaps in the future.
