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.
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.)
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?
