  1. I know that nominations can be debated, but I need to know if that also means that members can ask direct questions of the candidates during the debate.
  2. There is a possibility at our annual general meeting that if a former board member gets elected this year, most of the board will immediately resign, state their reasons and walk out of the meeting. I am concerned we will then not have enough board members to form a quorum to hold a board meeting, and no one to chair, record minutes, sign cheques, pay bills, etc. Effectively our club will cease to be able to do business. Here are my questions should these newly elected officers and board directors resign and walk out: Can someone make a motion to have the board member causing these resignations to be removed from their elected position (if they won`t resign of their own accord). Does the membership vote to accept or reject all of these resignations (I assume a simple majority is needed). If the resignations are accepted do we hold a new election immediately while we have the membership altogether. What do we do if we cannot fill out the board to achieve a quorum for board meetings.
  3. Hello, all. According to RONR, "member" is defined as"a person having the right to full participation in its proceedings - that is, as explained in 3 and 4, the right to make motions, to speak in debate on them, and to vote." (p. 3 l. 8-12) Does this mean that only full members with all those rights should be called "members"? Is it too confusing to have two classes of members by that name ("member"), even if they have distinctive titles (ABC and XYZ, say), each of which has its own set of rights and responsibilities outlined in the bylaws? We are proposing the wording in our bylaws draft, "There are two types of members in the [organization], namely [ABC] and [XYZ]." Would it be better to word it as "There are two types of members in the [organization], namely [ABC] (Members) and [XYZ] (Associate Members)" just to ensure there is no confusion? Or am I way overthinking this? Louise
  4. Roberts Rules says that only members may attend Board Meetings. In our association, members refers to those who belong to the association. The Executive Director holds that means even though they are members of the Association, they may not attend Board Meetings without the Board okaying it because in RROO members refers to Board members. The Association is a 501C6 I believe. Is the ED right?
  5. Hello, 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 resign. This does not seem possible, but I would appreciate an interpretation. Thank you!
