  1. No, that is not correct. If you want the chair and secretary to stay in those positions until the end of the meeting where elections are held -- that is, you want any exceptions -- then your bylaws should state that. Same for the other officers. Many organizations have such a provision to say that officers' terms end at the adjournment of the meeting where their successors are elected.
  2. RONR (12th ed.) 47:11 explains the process if the chair is absent (or vacant). More specifically, 47:11(3) explains what to do when the chair and vice-chair are both absent.
  3. Based only on the information that is provided by the OP, the committee is authorized to recommend two different things ( avenues and information). That does not give them any authority to use any of the organization's resources to produce the sample video. If they want to do it on a volunteer and using their own resources I don't see that anything is stopping them. This, of course, is subject to change based on extra information, such as budget and instructions, as Mr. Novosielski mentions above,
  4. I agree with Mr. Elsman that this sounds like it would be best done outside of a business meeting, a "retreat" as the OP said. The important difference here is to make certain that no actual business (motions) is done at the retreat.
  5. If it is truly a small variation, could it most easily be done by unanimous consent?
  6. Or their term has ended (or is close to the end, depending on the exact timing of the election). The way you describe it here, you make it sound like it's the individual's choice whether to leave when the term ends. Recent events may have caused confusion on that point, but that's not the way terms work.
  7. No. First, you are missing a word: "If a motion is made and disposed of without being adopted, and is later allowed to come before the assembly after being made again by any member in essentially the same connection, the motion is said to be renewed." The sentence is a definition of renewal. Second, the phrase "in essentially the same connection" does not apply to the member making the motion but to the motion itself. It's describing whether the motion is being moved in "essentially the same connection." The requirement that a motion can only be moved by someone on the prevailin
  8. I'm glad you decided to follow my Sage advice.
  9. That sounds like an amendment to the motion. So, unless the executive has the authority to amend board motions, Yes.
  10. As far as RONR is concerned, it doesn't matter at all whether the agenda was adopted. So there is no need to adopt the agenda now. Thinking about it another way: what if the motion, now, to adopt the agenda of the August 2020 meeting is defeated? That doesn't mean that the meeting becomes invalid. So the motion would be useless.
  11. The only thing a parSliamentarian (I spell it parsley-amentarian) can advise on is whether to chop it coarsely or finely. So, I doubt you need co-parSliamentarians.
  12. Most of these issues sound like objections needed to have been raised at the time: - they did not present each bylaw to be changed separately - They also did not provide the old bylaws, just said the members could go look them up You say that Why not? And were there enough members who were prevented from voting that they could have affected the result? Depending on the answers to these questions, the vote on the bylaws change could be declared null and void.
  13. It is too late to correct this error now. A point of order about abstentions would need to have been made in a timely manner, that is, at the time of the error. Give notice, if required, and move the motion at the next meeting.
  14. I believe Guest Puzzling meant that it cannot be correct that the election ended in a tie, making the point that it is still incomplete (I half expected that Mr. H would be the one to say that).
