The following administrative powers were (strangely) included in our 501c3's new/first Bylaws earlier this year. We are a public middle school PTO. Only the 5th/last of these seems reasonable to me. Policies -- Seek input and approval of school administration on all matters. Funding -- Fundraising efforts beyond dues must be approved by administration. Elections of Executive Committee -- Filling mid year vacancies requires administration approval. Special Meetings -- Administration may, on his/her own, call a special meeting. Treasurer Duties
This relates to an earlier post- some new info came in. An absentee ballot went out to the membership, per the bylaw requiring a vote "whether" to accept applicants to the society. instead of composing a ballot that asks the votes whether they vote YES or NO on each applicant, the officer in charge created a ballot with a YES box only. More than that: The ballot says, in bold: [this is the exact way it was printed:] Please indicate your approval by VOTING "YES" and in another page of the ballot: Please indicate your approval by checking "YES" next to each applicant's name below.
