  1. Can the BoD modify then, approve a policy change sent to them by a committee or must it be sent back down to the committee for modification? Thanks in advance, Patrick
  2. Two of the members of the local Chamber of Commerce are husband and wife holding the positions of the President and Secretary. There have been conflicts because of this. Is there a common rule about who can be on a board involving relatives? Thank you.
  3. We have an extremely poor constitution and by-laws, but it is what we have to work under for right now.

The emphasis is mine, and my question is this: Does anyone know the rationale why the part about Boards customarily holding meetings in Executive Session was removed in the 11th Edition? Of course if the c
  6. Greetings, Does a president have the authority to remove a person as the chair of a committee on the grounds of acting in the best interests of the organization, even if the regulatory authority over committees is granted to the Board of Directors in the organization bylaws? The body recognizes Robert's as the parliamentary guide (which is being used to substantiate the argument of the president having this authority), and has the following section on committees in it's bylaws: SECTION 1. The Board of Directors shall determine the committees deemed necessary and define the purposes of said com
  7. What do Roberts Rules say about the Executive staff director attending and participation in the volunteer board of Directors?
