  1. The entity wishing to transfer (delegate) powers may be a member, an officer, an executive board, or a society. 1. RONR says a member may not transfer his power to vote to another person (unless governing documents or laws allow it explicitly). Is any other member power transferrable when the rules are silent, e.g., the right to attend even if in executive session, or to nominate? 2. The bylaws say the president is to appoint the finance committee. Can the president transfer that power for the current term to the treasurer? 3. The bylaws say the executive board ("board") is to
  2. My organization has subordinate chapters with a yearly convention of voting delegates. Voting delegates are defined as current or past presidents in good standing. This year, the governing board has passed along a 40+page listing of proposed amendments to our by-laws. At the regular subordinate chapter meeting, am I required to read every single by-law and amendment for the membership? Traditionally, this has been done but most years, the list of proposals is very short. I suspect that reading and discussion of each of the proposed changes could potentially take several hours.
  3. I would greatly appreciate your assistance. A challenge has been made as follows (I've tried to remove identifying information): On [DATE], {A} got 97 Delegates, {B} got 219, there was 1 uncommitted delegate. At the county convention, they seated 97 {B} delegates, 222 {B} delegates. We won 5 of 18 delegates to the {current/about to happen meeting}, but if you take away the 2 extra delegates seated (assuming the 1 uncommitted went for {B} ... not sure that this is the case, but it doesn't matter) we would have won 6 of 18 delegates. Math as it was done: 97 of 31
  4. I am at conflict with the Inter fraternal council on my campus. Unfortunately my representative never attends meetings and is completely out of the loop with what my Fraternity is trying to do. Primarily amend a few different bylaws. I am trying to find out if there is a way the committee can motion to vote allowing me to represent in place of him at our next meeting. They bylaws they use bar us from having a second delegate unless he was approved of at the first meeting. I have searched the Robert Order of Law which is what the committee runs off of for everything not stated in their bylaws.
