  1. Hello, Our Bylaws prescribe that the Vice President of our Society shall serve as chairman of its Executive Committee. Shall I address him as Mr. President or Mr. Vice President at the Executive Committe meetings? Also, when I write, "...the [President/Vice President] being in the chair, and the Secretary being present," in the minutes, should I write President or Vice president in that instance? Thank you for your help.

    Recording Election Results in Minutes

    When I said "without a name" I meant that he did not write his own name on the ballot, which we require, but he did write the name of the person he voted for.
  3. Robert's Rules, 11th ed., includes an example tellers' report. I am taken to understand that I am to include it, in that form, in the meeting minutes. This is how it looks in the minutes I took: "A ballot vote was held, and the Secretary and Vice President counted the ballots. The chair announced the results of the Treasurer election: Number of votes cast........................................... 40 Necessary for election......................................... 21 Mr. A received............................... 16 Mr. B received.................................. 12 Mr. C received.................................... 11 Illegal Votes. Ballots without a name............................. 1 The chair declared that the result was no election, and a run-off election between Mr. A and Mr. B was held." What do y'all think about this? Anything you would change? BTW, we require that members put their names on the ballots, so don't worry about that part. I am more concerned with the form of the minutes.
  4. Alright, thank you, jstackpo. That was helpful. From your example, in my minutes would I put quotes around only “with...speed” and “when...aligned”? This is what I took you to mean. P.s., you spelt my name wrong.
  5. Hello, I am the secretary for our Society, and there have been amendments made to the bylaws at the last couple of meetings. I am not sure how to format this in the minutes. I think I have learned how and been able to format motions in the minutes well, in general; but, specifically, I am not sure what the right form is when amendments to the bylaws are moved or when the adoption of a resolution amending the bylaws is moved. Please, give me some guidance, and include examples in both the form of a motion and resolution. Thank you for your help and your time.
