  1. Our Bylaws specify for certain motions "a 2/3 absolute majority of the seated (members), present and voting, shall be required for approval ." My understanding is that, for the purpose of abstentions, the three terms here are at odds. "Absolute" would normally refer to the total membership, thus watering down the vote if abstaining. "Seated" would refer to only those in attendance, cancelling out "absolute." And then, "and voting" would once again exclude abstentions. So you could say the same thing simply by saying "a 2/3 majority of members voting," is that correct? Many thanks.
  2. Our chair overlooked the 2/3 majority required for a motion, and nobody else caught it until after the meeting. Does the carried motion stand?
