  1. Our organization is comprised of a few hundred members, which are further be broken down into three distinct groups. Our board is comprised of five members. One board member is elected by one group of members, another board member is elected by the second group of members, and the three other board members are elected by third, and largest, group of members. There is by-law change proposal that has been read at the first of two required meetings. The proposal is to allow the largest subsection of our organization to have a vote in electing one of the other subsection's board member. However, the proposal is excluding the third subsection from also voting in the selection of the second's board member. Basically, the largest subsection of our organization would be voting for the board member from one of the other subsections, as well as our own, but the third subsection would be excluded from voting. That was just a little backstory. I'm sorry if it's confusing. The crux of my question is as follows: At the second reading of the proposed by-law change, am I able to propose an amendment to it that would allow all three subsections to vote on the selection of one group's board member, instead of just two? Thank you so much in advance for your help. If you need any further clarification please do not hesitate to ask.
  2. Who reads a standing Committee by-law change? The person(s) proposing said change or the parliamentarian?
