  1. Is there any real definition of "member in good standing" in RONR? I have found areas that dance around using the phrase-like saying just because they are delinquent in dues does not necessarily affect their status of good standing. I have no clue on this, but to shorten my reason for asking I will attempt to give a short explanation as to why I ask. If a brand new person who is not yet a member, nor has been previously been a member, gets voted in as a full member at the meeting do they automatically get the status of in good standing? Can they be elected to office at the same meeting? There are other things at play here that directly go against the bylaws and policies concerning this, but what I am really curious if RONR states anything about what constitutes a member in good standing. Thanks! Mary
  2. We have a relatively small civic association 501(c)4 and are having upcoming elections for board positions. One member is soliciting new memberships and asking that the new members vote via write-in for him. He is even supplying them with ballots that he created. We have nothing in our bylaws, other than the indication that members in good standing are eligible to vote, but we have a history of denying voting rights to those who come to the election meeting and fill out a member application and pay the annual dues. In other words, we have previously not allowed a brand new member to vote. Help
