Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionI am on a board of trustees for a school (PreK - 12th) which operates as a ministry of a church. The headmaster of the church reports to the board and is hired and fired by the board. The board reports to the vestry committee of the church. In addition, our bylaws state that the headmaster shall serve as an ex-officio member of all committees. We have recently received a recommendation from one of our accrediting bodies that that the headmaster should serve as a non-voting ex-officio member of the board. 1 - Is it best practice (or acceptable) to limit voting rights of an ex-officio member? 2 - Can an employee of the board be a member of the board?
Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionIf present board member is up for reelection can present board change that member's title to exofficio in order to be sure the person remains on board due to being a key employee necessary for discussions and sometimes to make a quorum or would by laws need to be changed? Can board designate as a nonvoting position or would by laws need to be changed?
Our by laws are being re-written. Some want to change the exofficio members to become honorary members. Assuming there is no restraining bylaw connected with either term, what might an exofficio member be losing should he be designated honorary? Also is an exofficio member automatically considered a board member?
