  1. Hello; My wife and I are on the board of directors for a non profit community theater. we decided to put together a proposal to present to the board about putting on a show in the fall. I as the director, and my wife as the choreographer. In the proposal, we also had a projected budget as well as a preliminary list of folks that were interested in other production positions. One of those folks is also on the board and had expressed initial interest in being our costumer. This person was sick and could not physically be at this meeting. All of the above mentioned production positions are paid

    Correct Minutes

    What is the approprate verbage to record in the minutes when the chair has to temporarily leave the meeting due to a conflict in interest and turns the meeting over to a stand-in?
  4. Our club have no "Conflict of Interest" in our By Law or PPM or Guidelines. Our 4 Board of Directors are involved in other organization that we are partner with to set up a big event in two weeks. The event committees asked us to loan $1,100 for musical rental. Our orgnization doesn't have enough money in account but we can try and come up. So, President asked all Board of Directors to vote whether we should help them with the money we have or declined. Our 4 board of directors voted approved. I disagreed because they are involved in other organization and won't help with money too. I believe
  5. Hello, I've recently moved into a development consisting of 11 single family homes and 5 vacant lots which operate as a condo association. I'm confused as to how that can happen, but that's not my question here. My question is this, the president of the association owns a property management company that manages associations. His company currently manages our association. Is there a conflict of interest? I do not know what's transpired at the meetings, as I have not been privey to any meeting minutes since moving there. Thanks.
  6. Good afternoon, Recently, a member of a small Commission (6 people) that I serve as staff for asked the following: Is there a difference between an abstention and a recusal (which, based on what I've read so far is to not vote because of a conflict of interest)? I was not sure of the answer. As I explained, I equated an abstention with a simple non-vote (covering a number of circumstances), while a recusal was a conflict of interest. However, it seems as if a member's recusal is not specified in Robert's Rules - only a non-vote in conflict of interest circumstances. If a member had a conflict
  7. I'm one of the board of directors of a homeowner's association. There is another board of director who is the president, and he also owns his pool service company. He is currently servicing our association swimming pool and is paid $5,200/year + chemicals and supplies (~ $1,500 / year) with the association funds. There are many homeowners are are very angry and disturbed when I found out of this a few months ago, but we're not sure if their concern is valid or not. Is there anything in RONR that discusses a potential conflict of interest with the President being paid for doing pool services
  8. As the question of a "direct or indirect interest" (i.e. 'conflict of interest') does seem to come up a lot on the forum, I have a question: Should an organization create rules regarding how to deal with conflicts of interest? And if so, what types of restrictions should there be?

    Abstaining

    What are the various definitions that would be used to describe when a person would choose to abstain?
  10. My board tabled adopting some important documents such as a confidentiality agreement and conflict of interest document. We found out later that there were some actions going on that were not organization related but that would be a conflict of interest with their board position that was occurring. How does the current board president get those documents passed even though half of the board has involvement with the activity?
