Hello, I have two questions. 1) What is the proper protocol for removing a board member that is not an officer. There are a few different reasons why. 1) the board member is not responding to emails 2) they are not following their duties, i.e. they are our publicity chair and not posting anything on social media or sending out emails for events. 3) They have an overall poor attitude towards the board and are constantly causing conflict because they do not care for the current board. How do we handle a situation like this and if we must vote them out what is the proper way to do that. 2) The previous board wanted to vote on bylaw changes at a general membership meeting. 1) They did not provide a copy of the bylaw changes for the membership, in fact they provided a copy on the website in a "members only" section that was only accessible with a password. Not only was there no email informing the members where to look on the website (i.e. members only section) but they were never provided with a password to access them. 2) The current bylaws were removed from the website 3 days prior to being voted on so there was at least 2 days where they were not accessible until someone complained. 3) They were not voted on properly by the membership according to current bylaws or Robert's Rules. 4) After the subsequent vote took place, the changes were never updated by the current board to the general membership. Based on this, the next years board voted that the bylaw changes were null and void based on being done so incredibly wrong. We want to make sure that the new board's vote to do this was the correct move. We felt that this wasn't even an instance of "repealing" bylaw changes because they were never actually changed. Any help would be greatly appreciated! VP
There is some confusion about this in my organization. Can anyone help to clarify? According to Robert’s Rules of Order, “After an agenda has been adopted by the assembly, no change can be made in it except by a two-thirds vote, a vote of a majority of the entire membership, or unanimous consent.” (p. 373) Does this mean (1) that after the assembly has approved the agenda, a member may not add another item to the agenda except by a two-thirds vote; or (2) that only the general order of business (approval of minutes, committee reports, unfinished business, new business, etc.) is constrained by the adoption of the agenda and, hence, new items may subsequently be added spontaneously by any member without a two-thirds vote?
I am a board member of a national organization and need to know the following: If there are grammatical errors in our bylaws do I need to have a motion within the board or the entire membership body to make these grammatical changes? Content will not be changed. I am hoping the secretary can simply make the changes without a vote of any kind. Thoughts?
