In a small non-profit society with approximately 10 board members, elections for directors at the AGM seem generally to come from the floor. I attended an AGM recently where several members nominated themselves (and, not surprisingly, were voted in). I have never seen this before, and find this somewhat bizarre. Is there any precedent for self-nomination? I'm not sure of the content of this organization's Constitution. I can find nothing in the Societies Act, other than " The members of a society may, in accordance with the bylaws, nominate, elect or appoint directors. " And in RONR, it seems any member in good standing can make a nomination. But to nominate oneself??? Thanks for any guidance.
