Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionHello and good afternoon. We are relatively inexperienced in parliamentary procedure and appreciate any guidance. We are a small voluntary service organization (approx. 110 members) with a BOD with minimum of five elected officers but can be expanded up to 10 because of Chairs of Committees. Per bylaws, all people on BOD must be active, paid members of the organization. Our bylaws state we must have an annual meeting with elections. Bylaws also state that any membership meeting (which includes our annual meeting) must have 15 members for quorum. We just had our annual meeting and held elections. We had exactly 15 people present if you include BOD persons; we had 17 votes when you add in the mailed in absentee ballots. So we are not sure if we had quorum. One person states that BOD people don't count towards quorum. One person says that in membership meetings where BOD are required to members, that yes, they do count. Also, let's say only 14 people show up but we have over 15 votes because of mail in ballots, do the people who mailed in a ballot count towards quorum.
