I have scoured the RONR and can not find a clear answer to the following: During a Board Meeting, not a Membership Meeting, that the Members and Public are invited to attend, what rights do the Members of the association have to speak? I understand that at a Membership Meeting (annual meeting of the members) they have all rights. But during the monthly "Board Meetings" that are not closed, since they are not "members" of the board, are they considered "Public" and technically do NOT have the right to particpate? Please quote pages numbers in RONR 11th. Thank you! This is a local sports Association that is governed by RONR. All members of the association are dues paying members. The monthly meetings are "Board Meetings" that are open to the public. Thanks.
I am Parlimentarian of an American Legion Post in GA. The first and most basic requirement for membership in the Legion is that a service member MUST have served an absolute minimum of one day under a Federal military unit. One could be in the Reserves or National Guard and if the above requirement was not met, that person would not be eligible for AL membership. We have a "member" who joined another Post in GA and then moved to our Post. The first Post he joined did not adequately research his military service and we have subsequently determined that he did not meet the above requirement. This determination has been investigated at our State level and they came to the same conclusion. This person asserts that he should have a vote in the resolution of the issue of his admitability to the Legion. My stance is that since he never met the above requirement, he was never a member of the Legion and thus could not have a vote in the resolution of the issue. Many Thanks - I welcome your views and suggestions.
