  1. Hello Parliamentarians! Thank you in advance for your help here. I am curious how the relationship between our bylaws and RRON shake out in regard to the Chairman. What follows is the entire language within this organizations by-laws. SEC. 6.01: CHAIRMAN: The Chairman shall be the chief executive officer of the Central Committee and shall have general supervision and direction and control of the business and officers of the Central Committee. The Chairman shall be the chief spokesman for the XYZ Party in XYZ County. The Chairman shall preside at all regular and special meetings of the Central Committee, shall be an ex-officio member of all standing and special committees, and shall have such other powers and duties as may be prescribed by the Central Committee. The Chairman shall be responsible for providing a current copy of the by-laws to every member of the Central Committee. The Chairman shall be responsible for the preparation and distribution of the proposed notice and agenda for all regular and special meetings. END OF SECTION Does that little section of language supercede all of the language in RRON regarding a Chairman, for example, being a teacher, being neutral, not biased, upholding fairness, etc etc? example, a Chairman seeking to limit debate without asking the assembly and instead insisting two individuals can make an agreement to limit debate without a quorum present.. this is NOT in the bylaws... or entertaining a motion that violates the accused Constitutional rights where the motion woukd work directly against his 14th ammendment and sec 7 of the Ca constitution.. Thank you again for your assistance in this manner.
  2. The Executive Board of a local committee has a rather reluctant chairman who cancels any (Exec Board) meetings when anyone, other than himself, requests one. I cannot find any reference as to who may call a meeting anywhere in the committee's bylaws, its plan of organization or RROR. I'm hoping to cite a specific section in Robert's (if one exists) since I'm anticipating further pushback from the chairman. Thanks in advance. George
  3. Does the chair or chairman have the prerogative to not recognize a duly made motion?
  4. I am on a seven member, relatively insignificant, town committee. We practice Parliamentary procedure very loosely, which in this case is not completely inappropriate, but I feel that our new chair is taking advantage of the situation. First, at our last meeting the first chairman announced that he was going to resign and, in the same statement, nominated his successor, and without a second, called a vote, which passed unanimously. The new chair then, nominated the vice chairman. She did wait for a second, then the vote was called and it passed unanimously. I did not disapprove of the changes in roles, but thought the process should have played out differently. I thought it would have been more judicious if the chairman had resigned at the close of the last meeting, then nominations The chair writes the agenda and this next meetings includes this as it's first item of business: "Chairman’s statement for entry into the record." Is this appropriate?
  5. Can an organization's executive board vote in 2 co-chairmen of a standing committee? The bylaws say there will be "a chairman" of each standing committee. ----Note: I don't see how 2 people could preside, but that's not the initial question.
