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!
