Hello, Re: Small organization w/ nominating committee presenting a slate to membership A qualified member was presented to the committee for consideration. No other candidate come forward for the office. Four members of the six member committee agreed on this candidate. The chair said another candidate must be found and did not explain the purpose was to present a slate to the membership with only one person per office. With this information another candidate was solicited. Then the committee was informed they would have to choose. If the definition of a slate had been explained, the committee would not have gone out to solicit another canidate. Should the Chair have asked for a vote on the candidate that came forward before the committee solicited another? Was this improper? If, so, please, explain and list an reference to the Robert Rules, please. Thank you so very much!
We have a 15 member Board of Directors for a social service non-profit. We are dedicated to best practices and want to be sure we do things right as we are growing our Board and organization. Here is where I am confused... Our Board is getting ready to go through a nominating process for our Directors and Officers (Pres, VP, etc as outlined in our Bylaws). Our Bylaws state that the Executive Committee is charged to "set the slate of officers". Problem is our Bylaws have on Article for Officers and a totally seperate Article for Directors. No where in our Bylaws does it refer to a Director as an Officer. So we are trying to determine who is responsible for nominating the Directors. I read throught the 11th ED and it refers to Directors under the Officers section, so I am wondering if the Executive Committee would be the ones to nominate Directors as well, even though they are not refered to as officers in the Bylaws (and in fact have their own Article in the Bylaws). A BIG thank you for anyone who can help us ensure our nominating process is correct based on Roberts Rules and our Bylaws!
Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionBy our constitution, our officers are selected by a nominating committee and presented to the general body for approval as a slate. Our constitution states that nominations can come from the floor. My question...if there are nominations from the floor, do those nominations go back to the nominating committee to determine their qualifications and then present it back to the body for approval as a slate or can the body vote on indiviual positions? I am asking because we are a church and we have always voted on slates of officers not by indiviual positions. Please help ASAP!!!!!
