  1. There is no need at all to address this in the bylaws. See https://robertsrules.com/faq.html#1
  2. It's the Secretary's duty to prepare the draft and it should done so according to the rules in Section 48 in RONR. But for fun, have your chair read p. 472ff for RONR's form of the minutes. They don't get much briefer than that.
  3. While he's clearly wrong that they are "no" votes, as FAQ#6 that Mr. Martin referred you to notes, it is possible that the abstentions have the same effect as a no vote. If a majority of the entire 3 member board is required to adopt a motion, 1 yes vote isn't going to cut it and the motion would fail. So he may just be using imprecise language.
  4. I'm stubbornly waiting for the Deluxe Edition.
  5. I was sure, So adopting an agenda which does not include new business doesn't prevent members from bringing up new business after all of the items have been gone through, but it's going to take something more to permit it, correct? If so, yes, I wasn't clear on that.
  6. If the rules in RONR solely control this matter and previous notice is not required, yes.
  7. See Temporary Occupants of the Chair, beginning on p. 452 of RONR for the full set rules which Mr. Katz has summarized.
  8. Oops, I misread this. Stay tuned for a good response.
  9. Not unless the board has granted permission for them to do so. See RONR (11th ed.), p. 487
  10. I think it is a motion to amend something previously adopted if it's taken up on the 19th, sure. But what would be in order on the 20th if the meeting was held then and the members were in favor of granting additional time to those who had not paid?
  11. I don't think it's too late but even if you think it is, why couldn't they adopt a new motion to grant an extension?
  12. Sadly, Mr. Mountcastle won't be responding to a 9+ year thread.
  13. How about simply stating that no vote was taken on the motion, since that's what happened?
  14. I'm not sure you asked a question, but when it comes to a meeting of the membership, the board has no authority under the rules in RONR to impose any of the things you mentioned. Members are always entitled to make motions as new business unless the bylaws require previous notice.
  15. Maybe this is it. I found it when I saw PBix's question. https://robertsrules.forumflash.com/topic/9171-modified-voting-basis/?tab=comments#comment-32523
  16. The member should simply show up and participate as he sees fit. The society may wish to consider disciplinary actions against the President for this type of action.
  17. RONR makes no mention of a pledge, but if a deliberative assembly wants to go on record as supporting it, it certainly can adopt a motion to do so.
  18. But you can just register as Zev. Full names aren't required. Just ask J.J.
  19. I remember that Mr. Mountcastle was so adamant about not exeeding 5000 posts he posted his next 5000 or so as a guest.
  20. Thanks, Shmuel. I've enabled those settings. I had not noticed that before.
  21. I don't get the notifications by email, it's supposed to notify me the same way a quoted back response does, if I'm not mistaken. Either way there is no notification from the website itself and I'd prefer not to get them via email.
  22. I double checked my notification settings and it's set to receive notifications of all replies in a topic I post in but that feature still isn't working, just so you know. In this thread, Mr. Goodwiller's reply didn't generate a notification http://robertsrules.forumflash.com/topic/30735-youth-league-board-member/ and in this thread Mr. Martin's reply didn't generate one http://robertsrules.forumflash.com/topic/30734-removing-write-in-votes/
