  1. My state organization's Constitution and By-Laws do not specify that an officer must be elected by a majority vote. In the past, we have made the selection based on a plurality in some years, a majority in others. However, I seem to recall reading awhile ago in RONR that if there is no provision stating otherwise, a candidate must receive a majority of the votes cast to be elected. When I went back to check, I could not locate the paragraph I wanted. Am I mis-remembering? If not, could you indicate which chapter/section (or even page number) of RONR I should find this information in?
  2. A non profit membership organization is being sued by one of its members. Club has services of attorney. As the organization is small, many of the board members have had past 'business relationships' or transactions with the plaintiff. The attorney periodically briefs the BOD on status of litigation. BOD may be asked to approve various courses of action, and eventually possibly a settlement. Some members of the BOD believes they can pass a motion 'recusing' another member from being present at the attorney's briefing and that the motion would in some manner remove that member from any participation in BOD discussion/deliberation/votes regarding the litigation. RONR notes that 'no member should vote on a question in which he has a direct personal or pecuinary interest not common to other members of the organization. ... and notes that no member can be compeled to refrain from voting in such circumstances. Is there any action which could be taken to preclude the member from attending meetings and participating in discussions with the club attorney? That would certainly seem improper, as the member should be able to hear the information on which vote is to be made. ------------- Somewhere, (and I thought it was RONR) I read there was a statement about discipline procedures which allowed either complaintant or defendant to object to an individual sitting on Trial Board, and a provision for the assembly to 'disqualify' a member from deliberating?? Thanks, JJ
  3. The bylaws for our board state that "Board officers shall be President, Vice President and Financial Secretary." The Financial Secretary position has been vacant since our last monthly meeting because the board member in that office resigned from the board at the end of the last meeting. The next election is six months away. As I understand it, the words "shall be" in the bylaws do not leave any wiggle room; we must fill that vacancy. The bylaws do not say how soon we must fill the vacancy - indeed the bylaws say nothing whatever about mid-term vacancies.The bylaws do say, however, that RONR shall be the parliamentary authority. Does RONR have anything to say about how long we may go without filling the vacancy?

    Removing an officer

    Specific question, IF bylaws spell out REMOVAL OF ACTIVE CHAPTER OFFICERS. Certain parties want to impeach the newly elected president, however he has not even been installed.initiated nor done anything against the bylaws. Does Roberts Rules explain that active officers are only installed officers, it seems rather common sense, and also, does Roberts Rules explain what grounds are necessary for impeachment charges
  5. As Corporate Secretary (and an Officer) of my Association I am wondering what my authority is when it comes to internal operational issues is in the absence of the President. I understand that I primarily have the role to report to the Board but there is a situation that happened recently that I am concerned with. Without having a hierarchy (decision making power) spelled out out on paper the management team is at a loss when it comes to making decisions in the absence of the President. There has been a serious safety issue in the office and when the President is not here it is unclear who has the power to make decisions that affect the employees and Association. This issue is something that has to be dealt with immediately and cannot wait until the President is back in the office. There is a CFO and management team in-house. It doesn't seem that the CFO wants to use his authority and I feel a certain sense of responsibility, do I have any authority here? Can you help with some clarification? Thank you!
  6. If a election meeting was cancelled due to not enough officer to make a quorum. Is it right to let the general membership know that the meeting was rescheduled so if anyone wanted to add their name to the ballot or dispute a nominee?
  7. I've been mailed a ballot which includes candidate bios of those running for two officer positions; President and Vice President. The person currently holding the President position was appointed to the office after the acting President resigned; that seat is now up for election. Although this person has served on the board for four years, he has held the President position just shy of two years. Yet, his bio states, "I have been President of the HOA for the past 4 years and wish to continue on the board." His bio is misleading and inaccurate. I've contacted the management company who sent out the voting/ballot packet to ask if they were going to be sending out a correction. They replied telling me his bio is correct. I have minutes from the special meeting that was called on February 24, 2010 which appointed this person to President. So I have proof that his bio is incorrect. I'm concerned about the vote, would this be considered unethical or fall under misconduct of an officer and perhaps cause a vote to be rescinded? Thanks in advance for taking the time to read and respond.
  8. Hi all. An officer of our organization resigned today. He stated in his letter that it was effective 5 days in the future. The president is concerned that he future dated it, and will continue to have access to organizational resources in the interim. Does a resignation have to be immediate, or can it be future dated? Thanks.
