  1. One of our directors served for a two year term and at the end of it agreed to finish the term of another director who resigned. The nominating committee has asked if she is eligible to serve another term as director. Terms are two years and are staggered with one director elected in even years and two in odd numbered years. Our bylaws state: "No person shall hold more than one office at a time and no officer shall be eligible for three consecutive terms in the same office." (emphasis added) A's initial term as director began at the election meeting in 2017. When A's term ended i
  2. The bylaws of an organization I am a member of specifies the term of office for our Trustees (Directors) is 3 years. There are no bylaw limitations specified as to whether a Trustee can serve more than one consecutive term. RONR page 448 states (The bylaws may contain a provision that "No person shall be eligible to serve _______ consecutive terms in the same office."). This seems to indicate a Trustee could serve more than one term even though the bylaws do not address a limitation. As our bylaws do not declare a maximum number of terms, Is it appropriate for a Trustee to be electe
  3. Hello, I thought that I was elected to a board but now others say I was not. The minutes, I believe were mistranscribed. they read as follows: MOTION: Tom made the motion to amend the bylaws to increase the board to 11 members. 2nd: Pete. Carried unanimously. MOTION: made by Tom to nominate Jerry to the board 2nd: Alice. Carried unanimously My question is this: Tom made a motion to "elect" but we believe that it was mistranscribed and to "nominate" was put into the minutes. Question: The by-laws were amended to increase the board so that Jerry could be
  4. At annual meeting to elect officers, can association member ask for vote (voice or hand) for each officer as opposed to voting on entire slate? No specifics stated in Bylaws.
  5. At our upcoming AGM, one member may raise an objection to a candidate running for the board. The candidate meets the qualifications set out in our rules, but the member has an objection based on what she considers to be uncooperative behaviour. What should the chair do when the member raises her objection? Candidates will say a few words, followed by a Q and A session. If the member raises her objection to this candidate in the form of a question, is that admissible? Thanks in advance for your help for those 2 questions.
  6. Our by-law states that a resignation by a Director is effective once received by the Secretary. Is it also necessary (or best practice) to bring a resolution to the full Board of Governors to acknowledge their receipt of the resignation and for their acceptance? Or can the resignation be presented by the Secretary at a meeting and included in the minutes? Many thanks.
  7. I am part of a HOA and was nominated and elected on the board of directors at our annual meeting. I hold a "voting" position. My question is this, am I an officer OR a director. (I am not a chairman, president, vice president, secretary or treasurer).
  8. This is in regard to a non-profit organization. What course of direction can an organization's board of directors go if a director is making changes to bylaws that do not specifically follow procedures and rules according to it's own bylaws and also making changes and decisions for purchases and procedures without consulting the entire board of directors or explaining the situation or concerns that are specifically detailed but generalize stating all concerns, purchases etc must be presented to board in our bylaws? What are some direction of ways to correct this issue and also what type of
  9. Our Nominating Committee slated a person in a Director Position (3 year appointment) and that persopn was duly elected. Our subsidiary corporation was in need of Officers and this Director was a better fit for that position. According to our by-laws an officer or director cannot sit on both boards except for the Presidents of both Boards. The Director has submitted his resignation. In our by-laws, a director who has resigned is replaced with a simple majority vote of the board of directors and serves until the next election. Since the director has not been formally installed, can we not ha
  10. After a second election ballot was issued (the first was deemed invalid since it did not follow our constitutional rules for ballots) the recording secretary resigned. The board voted to replace the RS with a person who was a candidate for a board position on the ballot. Is the second ballot still valid or should it be replaced? If the ballot is not reissued how should any votes for that candidate be handled? Thank you
  11. An organisation wishes to hold their election for executive by electronic ballot. This is somehat covered in the bylaws under s.22(2) which states: 22 (1) A member in good standing is entitled to one vote. (2) Election of incoming directors shall be by electronic or paper ballot managed in a manner deemed appropriate by the director. The election process shall be observed by an independent Returning Officer appointed by the Directors to ensure integrity of the voting process. (3) Voting for special resolutions shall be by electronic or paper ballot managed in a manner deemed appropriate by the
