  1. I am on the BOD for my organization and we keep having an issue arise. Last board meeting it was voted with a unanimous nay. This past board meeting (three months after the other) it was voted with a 5-2 vote for yea. I am frustrated that once an issue has already been voted on that our Secretary can bring it up whenever things don't come out the way they want. Is there anything stating that after an issue has been voted on and decided upon, the same issue can or cannot be brought up again at the next meeting? And is there something saying that how often can it happen? Thank you!
  2. In the college organization that I am Chairman for, we have a special point of business at the beginning of our agenda for every Executive Board meeting, titled "Matters of Concernment." This section is meant to allow for any of the Board members to bring to light any issues within the Board (i.e. a member's excessive lateness, a member's dearth of communicated updates, etc) I understand that what should be recorded in the Minutes should be decisions, motions, votes, etc., and that discussions are not necessary. After further reading the FAQ page, I read that including discussed matters "is improper to do so." So if a members rises to address an issue, "Treasurer rises and states, 'I am tired of getting the budget forms from the President a week late. I want them on time!'" After he states his concern, no motion is made to resolve or censure, etc. So because no motion was made, would it be best NOT to record this concern in the Minutes because no motions were made? Or would it be best to record the Treasurer's concern in the Minutes? Our bylaws have nothing on the matter as to what should or should not be included in the Minutes, thus we default to RRO.
