  1. Is there a case to be made that someone with a strong opinion "should" recuse themselves even though it cannot be required.
  2. I am aware of what RONR says on recusal and how it can't be compelled. But I am in a situation now where people are claiming if someone has already come to a strong opinion on a matter that they should recuse themselves from voting. I find that frankly assinine as that is the whole point of advocacy. A person making a motion usually (hopefully) has a strong opinion on the matter, that is why they are advocating the motion.
  3. If a set of bylaws sets forth the following: Amendments to Bylaws 1A: Procedure for the State Executive Committee to Propose Amendments [details about how the State Executive Committee does this] 1B: Procedure for Approval of Proposed Changes [details about how the delegates at an annual convention can approve the changes proposed by the State Executive Committee] And then moves on to other articles, is this the only way that amendments can be done or can a member propose a change. IOW, does the fact that there is a specific procedure for the State Executi
  4. I am looking at a bylaws provision regarding removal of a member of the executive committee which require a 2/3 vote of the "whole executive committee." That seems pretty straightforward if there are no vacancies, but if there is a vacancy is the "whole executive committee" the number of possible seats or the number of possible seats minus any vacancies?
  5. I understand that it states in several places that a form of election ballot that has "for" and "against" a candidate is improper, can a specific bylaws provision override this? I am looking at a set of bylaws in which the form of ballot is specifically set forth as being able to vote yes or "not this person" for a specific candidate.
  6. Thank you.... I have no idea where I got that idea into my head.
  7. I had thought that it was different from bylaws which go into effect immediately but rather constitution amendments go into effect upon adjournment sine die but now I cannot find any answer to this question (the organization is operating under the 11th). Can you help a sister out here?
  8. In the 11th (see 207:15) the phrase "demand the previous question" is used a proper form and example, but in the 12th (16:20) the word demand is omitted. I am just curious about the reason for the change.
  9. For example, if someone moves to do X can that motion be amended to be to choose X or Y?
  10. Are you saying you interpret it as the exact language being needed for written notice?
