I am the staff assistant for the Board of Directors. I prepare the minutes for each meeting and the secretary normally signs. If the secretary is absent from a meeting, who then would sign the minutes for that meeting? Is he still permitted to do so? If not, how is the signer determined? From my online research I've determined that he may not be permitted to sign the minutes and the Board would choose another officer to sign in his place. If this is true I need to be able to explain this and show where this is stated in writing. I believe I have my answer, I just need to be able to prove it. Any help or corrections would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
One of our members is on a three-week-long official leave of absence. During that time, we are having elections for new members and our executive officers slate. Does a member on leave have the right to vote? She will be calling into the meeting to attend via speakerphone, which our bylaws permit, but is she considered an active member during that meeting and/or considered part of the quorum? If we are voting by ballot only, which our bylaws require, is she allowed to send in a ballot and thus vote, without actually appearing at the meeting? She is not permitted to vote by proxy but would have an actual ballot delivered. I’m having trouble finding the answer to this in ROR that I can cite. Thank you.
