  1. The Executive Board of a local committee has a rather reluctant chairman who cancels any (Exec Board) meetings when anyone, other than himself, requests one. I cannot find any reference as to who may call a meeting anywhere in the committee's bylaws, its plan of organization or RROR. I'm hoping to cite a specific section in Robert's (if one exists) since I'm anticipating further pushback from the chairman. Thanks in advance. George
  2. Our Bylaws state the President can choose a pro tem secretary. However, the Bylaws do not clarify the actual duties. From what I gather reading RR, the pro tem secretary merely takes minutes of the meetings. Due to a lengthy replacement / election process, it could be 5 months before filling the position. The secretary duties cannot wait. The Bylaws do not address four of the questions below: Can the pro tem secretary fulfill all of the duties of the official secretary if agreed to by the Board? Can the pro tem secretary attend the Executive Session that is secret if agreed to by the Board? Our Bylaws state guests at a board meeting can participate in discussions for the first hour of the meeting or as deemed appropriate by the board. Can the pro tem secretary participate in the board discussions after the first hour if agreed to by the board? (This may sound obvious, but I need to confirm.) Can a pro tem secretary vote on board matters if agreed to by the Board? Can a pro tem secretary be counted for a quorum if agreed to by the Board? I have clicked on "Notify me of replies" this time! Many thanks.
  3. Add a general meeting emotion is made to override the policy and procedure at the executive board as established for screening and possible endorsement of outside political candidates the member stacked the votes of the general meeting with supporters of a political candidate who is also a member of the organization and voted for his endorsement without the screening procedure of the board has put in place is this appropriate how do we counter act?
  4. We have a situation where our President resigned effective immediately and a week later the VP resigned effective immediately as a result of not wanting to fill the role of President. What now?
  5. In our organization, the bylaws don't mention committees at all. We simply meet yearly to elect the Executive Board. Can the Executive Board establish standing committees and boards—with standing authority to act on certain matters without specific instructions—that report to it? It is my understanding that such standing committees and boards would need to be in the Executive Board's special rules of order, per page 578.
  6. We are holding executive board elections and I am on the Nom Com. Two of the three on the Nom Com are wanting the open position. 1. Can the third person on the NC nominate one of us? I have read and re-read and I cannot seem to find a definite answer. Help me out y'all. Thank You, Katherine
  7. I chair an organization and some of our members attend, as allowed in our bylaws, the Executive Board meetings. Can those members, who are not on the Executive Board, speak in debate or make presentations in those meetings?
