  1. From our attorney. I gave XXX a letter to have posted with my finding in reference to resignations and appointments. If it is not posted let me know. I do not want to get involved in the politics. Others might have differing opinions. I based my opinion on the bylaws and Florida Statues which I believe trump Robert rules. Question, Can (B Bylaw) supersede (A Bylaw- we only have 3 Board members out of 7) when accepting resignations and appointing new board members? A Bylaw) Executive Board- A quorum of five (5) board members must be present for voting. B Bylaw) Election of Officers: Should an elected Officer of the Executive Board, other than the President resign or vacate his/her position during the time for which he/she was elected, the Executive Board will appoint a member in good standing for the remaining elected period. Should the office of President be vacated, the Vice President will assume the duties of President, irregardless of time served on the board. Thank you again for your input.
  2. Thank you all for your input. We should receive news today on how we are going to progress and I will share with you as soon as I know whats next.
  3. Executive Board- A quorum of five (5) board members must be present for voting. General Meeting- Members in good standing together with at least four (4) elected officers present at the general meetings will constitute a quorum. A majority vote of the quorum in the affirmative, or the negative, will be necessary to transact club business. Election of Officers: Should an elected Officer of the Executive Board, other than the President resign or vacate his/her position during the time for which he/she was elected, the Executive Board will appoint a member in good standing for the remaining elected period. Should the office of President be vacated, the Vice President will assume the duties of President, irregardless of time served on the board. Past President role: Will assist the President, will chair the following committees: scholarships, memberships, and election. Suspension of Bylaws- Any By-law may be waived in case of emergency by a simple majority vote of members in good standing present at a regular or special meeting at which a quorum is present. That is it, no mentioned about accepting the resignations, even our VP has not been accepted yet. We need to revamp our bylaws 100%. Someone did mention to me the attorney might not really be protecting the board as much as protecting the current President. I almost wonder if we should reach out to a different attorney for a 2nd opinion.
  4. Wow very interesting. We have 800 members and normally 300 come in to vote annually in January. Last night we had about 75 to 100 members waiting to see what was going to take place. Thank you, I hope to hear from others.
  5. Our social club has had a pretty rough start to the new year. Our bylaws state the Executive Board must have a quorum of 5 to vote and in order to have our general meeting you must have 4 board members to open the meeting. Our VP resigned two weeks ago and our Past President resigned last week. Last night our newly elected President wanted to appoint a new Parliamentarian, VP and Past President, just before the board meeting, we had another executive board member resign (Sergent of Arms ), leaving them with 4 executive board members- no quorum-no votes. Just before the general meeting, another executive board member resigned (Treasure) leaving them with 3 executive board members- no general meeting. Our attorney (who is a member, our attorney for the executive board & mediator) adjourns the meeting and said he must review Robert Rules and thinks we must now have a new election. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
