The following administrative powers were (strangely) included in our 501c3's new/first Bylaws earlier this year. We are a public middle school PTO. Only the 5th/last of these seems reasonable to me. Policies -- Seek input and approval of school administration on all matters. Funding -- Fundraising efforts beyond dues must be approved by administration. Elections of Executive Committee -- Filling mid year vacancies requires administration approval. Special Meetings -- Administration may, on his/her own, call a special meeting. Treasurer Duties
Our association has never had any "written" policies. They've flown by the seat of their pants for years. I am now on the Board and am pulling together policies and the board is approving them. Two board members are opposed to policies but lean heavily on Roberts Rules. What does Roberts Rules say about policies, if anything? Thanks
In the midst of an election year, the chairperson of the election committee has been established, however the vote will be a few months away (May '13). If a motion to amend the election policies is put before the floor, should it be ruled out of order as the election process is underway and deemed improper to amend a process while it is currently being utilized? In other words, if members wish to amend the election bylaws they must do so while elections are not currently being held.
