    Voting By Email

    My Board has 13 Voting Members. We recently did an email poll to expend funds with results as follows: 5 Voted “Yes”-Expend the funds 4 Voted “No”-Do Not Expend the Funds 4 Did not Respond While a majority of returned votes (5/9) said yes, I am concerned that I do not have a simple majority of the total possible votes (7/13). Is that a valid concern or does this satisfy the majority vote? Comments welcome-and thank you very much for your opinion.

  7. Can our Board of Directors start and vote on motions by email? Our bylaws state that they can only call for special meetings by phone or mail. It seems to me that they can do anything they want to this way because it is hidden and our members know nothing about what is going on until our regularly scheduled monthly meeting. They have managed to pass many motions this way that a majority of our members do not agree with.
