Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionHello, 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).

The chair appoints the parliamentarian [RONR, 11th ed., p.465, l. 30-32]. Question: How does the assembly get rid of that parliamentarian?

On this point the counter argument is to say that if minutes are "published" they can keep it in and they quote "In an ordinary society, unless th
Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionHello, I have searched for the answer to my question and have come up empty handed. I am curious if the Chairman of a Representative Assembly has the right to revoke an elected representative member's voting rights? Are there certain circumstances where the Chair would be allowed to revoke voting rights? Currently, the issue I am having is with my peers using their personal/private social networking pages and expressing their opinions of other members (not by name or in an insulting fashion), and subsequently our Chairman is threatening to revoke voting rights and even pressuring members to re
