  1. I was at a convention this month, the organization follows Robert's rules of order. The organization meets once a year and goes over resolutions and elects new grand officers. This year a number of resolutions never got heard on the floor. Instead they were referred to executive committee, which normally handles business in between conventions. I was told any business, including resolutions, not handled during convention dies at the end of convention. So when does a resolution die?
  2. At our annual Convention we have thirty resolutions. Must I read everyone or could I give each voting delegate a copy of the resolutions and say Resolution #3 and take a vote or do IO have to read everyone,
  3. I'm back. I am chairing a platform committee for a convention. The committee is mandated by the Bylaws and its role is to propose amendments to a platform but that is inferred by the instructions in the Bylaws for what is required to pass proposals. So a member asked if the committee could pass a resolution asking one of its members to do resign one of two seats held. My initial thought was no - that internal committee resolutions wasn't part of its scope and requesting a resignation bordered on a form of discipline... And after going through the appropriate RONR sections, I am still not certain. My instinct feels right but I would like some input.
  4. RONR 11 ed pp 97-99: "Except as authorized in the bylaws, the business of an organization or board can be validly transacted only at a regular or properly called meeting—that is, as defined on pages 81–82, a single official gathering in one room or area—of the assembly of its members at which a quorum is present." Could anyone help me determine: 1) Whether this ("organization or board") applies to a convention of delegates as defined later in the text 2) Whether a convention's Committee on Standing Rules could permit electronic meeting if it is not provided (or disallowed) by the bylaws, or whether other special rules of order pertaining to this being a "special meeting" (a special convention) might do the same
  5. How much notice is required for making an amendment during a convention that takes place one a year? How about for significant changes? Is notice to the Executive Board / Constitution Committee sufficient? What about notice to chief delegates? When would it be reasonable / latest time to have the organization distribute the amendment to members?
