At our recent convention, delegates approved changes to the constitution, elected officers and then adjourned. Later, someone suggested that because the changes were not presented as a committee report and the report not adopted, the changes are invalid. Thoughts anyone?
The Association of Constituent Units has 293 member units. Some believe that 147 constituent units represented in person or by proxy constitute a quorum for any annual or special meeting. Is this correct? Quotes from the Bylaws follow: "The membership of the Association shall consist of the individual Constituent Units that have been accepted into membership . . ." "A majority of the Constituent Units entitled to vote at any annual or special meeting, and who are present in person or by proxy, shall constitute a quorum for such meeting." "At any annual meeting of the Association, each Constituent Unit in good standing may be represented by one voting delegate and one alternate, such alternate being entitled to vote only in the absence of the voting delegate. Each Constituent Unit shall be entitled to one vote, either by the delegate present or by proxy."
