  1. Our national parent club recently expelled a member, following the procedures in our Bylaws with a 2/3 vote, etc. The Bylaws don't say anything past the point of expulsion -- if the vote carries, the member is expelled, and that's that. Our club, however, also has clubs that are members, and the expelled person is still a member of a member club. The national club has a few awards programs, for which members of member clubs are also eligible. The expelled member, post-expulsion, qualified for one of these awards. The general feeling of the Board is that expelled members should not be eligible for national awards, regardless of local club membership. We do not have written standing rules and the awards policy is decades old, so finding the original wording is challenging, to say the least. We are currently revising our Bylaws. Is there something we could/should/need to add to the Bylaws to clarify that expulsion disqualifies one for any awards? Or can we update the awards policy (or, essentially, rewrite it) as a standing rules change, to note that one must be in good standing with the parent club to qualify? (Can one be in good standing if one is not/was not a member?) I have looked through The Book but don't seem to find anything that really applies. Which I realize may mean this question isn't really appropriate here, in which case please let me know and I apologize! Thanks for any insight!
  2. I would like your opinions on this matter. We have and HOA, the Bylaws will state that to be on the Board, or on a Committee you must be in Good Standing. We had used that term thusly: “Good Standing” shall mean a Member who is current in the payment of their assessments and not in violation of the Governing documents. Violation of Governing documents as determined by the Governing body responsible for such matters, until such time as the matter is resolved or appealed." Because we are allowing for Member Representatives (required Power of Attorney stating limited power to act for Member in matters regarding the HOA - several homes have parents living in them where the child is the owner living elsewhere, and they desire their parents to participate for them in the HOA), we are considering change that requirement to indicate that the LOT must be "in good standing" so that the new definition would be thus: “Good Standing” shall mean a Lot that is current in the payment of their assessments and not in violation of the Governing documents. Violation of Governing documents as determined by the Governing body responsible for such matters, until such time as the matter is resolved or appealed." One member has suggested that Lots can make payments... rather members do. Are we adding an level on clarity to our definition by changing it? Again, we want to make sure the Member or the Member Representative is in Good Standing basically... Thanks for your thoughts. Laurie
  3. Re: a necesary tie between discipline and good standing. Under RONR 10th edition, the act of sending the targeted member notice of disciplinary action always resulted in an immmediate suspension of all rights, excepting those relating to trial [RONR 10th ed., page 637 lines 33 ff.] Under RONR 11th edition, the act of sending the targeted member notice of disciplinary action does not result in an immediately suspension of all rights, but can, if the notice says so. [RONR 11th ed. page 659, line 6, see "if desired"]. Q. If RONR 11 applies, and if a disciplinary notice goes out, without the optional "if desired" suspension of rights, then does page 6 FOOTNOTE apply? That is, page 6 Footnote only kicks in if there is a ("desired") "suspension of right or rights." -- Implying that • If there is no suspension of a right, then there is no loss of "good standing". And conversely, • If there is a suspension of a right, then there is a loss of "good standing." . . . Despite the notice of a disciplinary action? Right?
  4. In our chapter constitution someone is automatically placed on probation if their GPA is below a 2.5. This happened to our newly elected president, so he was also automatically removed from office because the parliamentarian felt that probation is not in good standing and therefore he cannot hold an office. I have be searching through Robert's Rule and do not see a clear position on whether probation is a good or bad standing. If someone could point me to where is say what type of standing probation is and what someone on probation can do that would be incredibly helpful. Thank you
