  1. Hello, Recently I've been faced with an issue in my Student Association with regard to how to remove a member of a constitutionally supported standing committee (e.g. our Constitution required this committee to exist). I myself am the subject in question. After an in depth review of our bylaws, the only statute that exists with regard to removal states that the "appointing office" may remove the member at their discretion. My question is: I was recommended for this appointment by the Speaker of the Assembly, pending the approval of the Representative body. Would that then mean that the "appointing office" would be the Representative body? Also, if I understand RONR correctly, the proper way to remove someone previously appointed to a position would be to make a motion to "rescind" or "amend something previously adopted" toward that person's appointment? The reasoning behind this is that the current chair of the committee sent a memo to myself informing me of my immediate removal from the committee. He cited no precedent or statute in his memo and is basing this off of his sole feelings. I take my role on this committee very seriously and would like to remain on it. I'm trying to find a way to stop this from happening! I would appreciate any help you can offer, thank you!!!
  2. O.K. New to this forum. So I hope this works. Have a Booster board for local HS sports team. The bylaws require that a board member must have a student on the team to sit on the board. The President and VP kids either did not make the team or are academically ineligible. So they can not sit on the board. The President wishes to stay and has asked the Treasurer to make a motion to change the bylaws. The Secretary is against it since it would then render the bylaws pointless. There are only 4 positions, President, V.P., Secretary, Treasurer. Question 1. If the Treasurer does make this motion, do the President and VP have a vote since they are now not qualified to sit on the board? Bylaws do not give direction. Question 2. Is there a traditional order of succession as only two officers remain? Would the Secretary or Treasurer step in as "acting President" until another could be elected? No one can give me an answer as to whether the bylaws outline for this circumstance. Question 3. Does the Secretary/Treasurer get appointed to the Presidency then a new Secretary/Treasurer elected, or are the Secretary/Treasurer required to be nominated to the Presidents office and then officially elected in if they wish to accept that office? Thanx for any direction, apparently whoever put together the bylaws never planned on encountering a scenario like this. Hard to believe they've never had an issue with an officer not being able to fulfill his/her term before, regarless of cause.

    Removal of officers

    I have read your previous posts on removal of officers without a hearing and the key words were OR and Until, but what about, Said trustees so elected shall serve AS SUCH, until their successors are duly elected and qualified. Is that the same thing as OR?
