  1. Here is the situation I am facing: The Standards Board/Committee for an organization has received information from one member of the organization about another member. While this information would constitute as grounds for termination if it were true, there is no evidence in support of the claim. The "offender" has not done anything else to soil his/her own reputation or the reputation of the organization. After receiving the unverifiable information, the Standards Board met with the said "offender" and terminated their membership without giving him/her a chance to refute the claim or give their side of the story. Is this hearsay? Can the committee simply take one member's word over another despite their equal level of authority within the organization? Because there is no designation for what level of "proof" must be provided in order to terminate a member in the bylaws, Robert's Rules of Order govern the proceedings.
