I have a question about resignations, but can't find any specific details in Roberts' Rules. In our not-for-profit organization, the membership elects directors, then afterwards the directors elect the executive officers (president, secretary, treasurer, and vice-chair). We also have a past president position which is not elected. Last week, our president resigned from their president's position, but he wants to remain the past president. Is this possible? Or does his resignation mean that he is not eligible to serve as past president because he resigned from the board? Our constitution has no by-laws about this.
Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionHello! I'm curious how the open meeting laws (of New York State) work when applied to meetings of the Executive board of an organization and the President's cabinet meetings. I'll explain each further below. Executive board meetings are meetings of the President, VP, Comptroller, Chief Justice, Speaker of the Assembly, Chair of Elections, and the organization's advisor. These individuals meet on a weekly basis. Presidential Cabinet meetings are meetings in which the advisors to various departments meet weekly with the President of the Association to update him on their progress. Lately the impressions coming out of these meetings is extremely questionable and when the Representatives of this Association as what was discussed, we receive a response of "that information is confidential". There is nothing in our bylaws about meeting minutes, however, I was curious if RONR made mention of any that could relate to this issue. Thanks for your help!
Are members of a board of a club who participate in an executive session meeting held to a standard regarding the confidentiality of the discussion in executive session? If a board member reveals to an outside party details of a discussion held in executive session, what remedies are available to the board/organization?
