  1. I think you misread the original discussion and continue to have the wrong impression. Check out this https://robertsrules.forumflash.com/topic/26031-canceling-special-meetings/?do=findComment&comment=147776 and this https://robertsrules.forumflash.com/topic/26165-constitutional-change/?do=findComment&comment=148730
  2. I think there's been enough metadiscussion. Any more and I may have to lock the thread.๐Ÿ™‚
  3. Thank you. I wasn't able to download the file so I couldn't see the exact format, but I wonder where they got it from to begin with.
  4. I think Mr. George is trying to understand FAQ 6.
  5. Actually, I've never quite understood this. What difference does it make whether a provision in the bylaws allowing for a suspension of the rules is contained within the provision being suspended or within some other provision? In other words, if provision A says that provision B can be suspended, would anyone argue that provision B cannot be suspended because provision B does not allow for its own suspension?
  6. Are you saying that blockchain voting technology is so advanced, it could be mistaken for slips of paper?
  7. RONR defines ballots as "slips of paper on which the voter marks his vote" (p. 412, ll. 13-14). A machine is not the same as slips of paper in many respects, including things such as verification of the totals and recounts, and even in terms of confidence that a member's vote has been accepted.
  8. No. (Unless you're talking about a member of a parent committee who is not a member of the actual subcommittee that is meeting.)
  9. I don't see any problem with voting by this method if authorized by a special rule of order or a convention standing rule, but it is not clear that it would fulfill a requirement in the bylaws that a vote be taken by ballot.
  10. A meeting is a meeting -- all members of the body that is meeting must receive the proper notice, regardless of whether the meeting will enter into executive session for some or all of the meeting time. What do you mean by "knowing that not ALL can attend"?
  11. Page 43, line 17.
  12. Did you substitute "pronouns" for "prepositions"?
