  1. Background A slate of officers has already been presented to the general members this month. All those nominated accepted the nomination before being placed on the slate by the Nominating Committee. The election of officers will take place during next month's general meeting per bylaws. In the meantime, one of those on the slate has now removed their name for consideration BEFORE next month's the election. This person was the only one on the slate for that given officer position. What do we need to do to fill that position? 1) Open up nominations again during next month's meeting, al
  2. I am a member of a school booster organization and at our last regular meeting the Nominating Committee presented their slate of officers for the election. The president sought reelection and was the sole person on the Committee's slate for the office of President, though there was other nominations. The President then quoted part of Robert's Rules regarding a slate for elections, saying typically there is only one nominee per office on the slate. The President then proceeded to say that the Nominating Committee decides the officers and there is no election. This was in our regular meeting in

    electronic voting

    My golf association is revising our bylaws and the subject of electronic voting came up. The discussion centered around utilizing some kind of technology platform designed for this process only in the annual election of officers. Currently, our nominations committee comes up with a slate (1 candidate per position), then we can take nominations from the floor at our September meeting. Then we have the election at the October meeting. We currently allow absentee voting for the election of officers only. The idea around electronic voting is that we could announce the slate and take nomi
  4. At annual meeting to elect officers, can association member ask for vote (voice or hand) for each officer as opposed to voting on entire slate? No specifics stated in Bylaws.
  5. Hello, I am new to RONR, but need to learn a proper procedure, and have the text to back it up. Our local GOP is having a vote on new officers on Saturday, March 14th, and they have selected a slate of officers to be considered. They also say nominations may be made from the floor. If one challenges a slate, is that done with a new slate of officers? One person I have spoken to has related to me that a challenge to a slate must be only 1 person for 1 office, rather than challenging each office nomination, if needed. I am concerned that I am hearing possible political expediency rather than
  6. We are considering presenting two separate slates at our annual meeting for board member elections. This is due to the fact that several board members are resigning before their term ends if one board member is re-elected for another three year term. One slate, recommended by the nominating commitee, will omit this person's name. The second slate would include his name. The general members would then vote by private ballot for one slate to determine the winner. Is this allowed?

    Incomplete slate?

    Our nominating committee was unable to fill all the positions on the slate by the appointed timeline. About a week after the nom. comm interviews had been completed and well past the deadline to submit, two candidates came forward for the 2 vacancies. Does the NC need to schedule interviews for these belated two candidates for the vacant positions or do they simply run from the floor at our Convention? (Missing positions are the 2nd & 3rd VP's--2 out of 6 elected officers) Thanks for your help! Mary Williams, President
  8. We had elections for our group and did not have anyone on the slate for Vice President Membership. No one ran off the floor, thus the position was left vacant. The person holding the position had specifically stated that they did not want to run again and had already served for 2 years which in our bylaws is term. Our president appointed a Vice President of Membership. Now we are being informed that this cannot take place. The person is claiming that the previous VP Membership is still on the board and the only way to remove the person is to ask for their resignation. Is this true? Can't the
  9. Hello, Re: Small organization w/ nominating committee presenting a slate to membership A qualified member was presented to the committee for consideration. No other candidate come forward for the office. Four members of the six member committee agreed on this candidate. The chair said another candidate must be found and did not explain the purpose was to present a slate to the membership with only one person per office. With this information another candidate was solicited. Then the committee was informed they would have to choose. If the definition of a slate had been explained, the com
