If an elected member of a standing committee from a society has missed all ( or X number of ) committee meetings (consecutively) then are they removed from the list of committee members? I'm asking mainly for how to calculate quorum.
Can a Standing Committee be made up entirely on persons who are not members of the organization? We are a Fire Company working to incorporate an existing Ladies Auxiliary for 501C3 compliance. The argument is we can just make them a standing committee with a seperate set of bylaws that does refer back to ours for discipline, harassment, and a few other areas without making them a type of member of our organization. I say they need to be a class of membership that is set up with a set of bylaws that follow next to ours but has a seperate level of membership requirement from firefighting or else the tax, insurance, and discipline of our bylaws doesn't apply to them under Roberts Rules.
Hello, friends-- First, thank you all for the help you've provided me in the past; it has been indispensable to helping me fulfill the duties of parliamentarian for my society. I have what I think is a very quick, non-urgent question. I have looked through RONR 11th and can't seem to find a direct answer to this: If the procedure for the appointment of chairs of standing committees is not established in the by-laws (or anywhere else for that matter), and the committee chair's seat vacates after the initial appointment of a chair (for example, when the committee chair's term is up), is the assumed procedure: A) The empty seat remains a chair's seat per se, and the assembly appoints the committee chair specifically, The assembly appoints someone to the committee to fill what becomes non-specific seat, and the committee itself then appoints the new chair, C) The assembly appoints someone to what becomes a non-specific seat and then appoints the new chair from that committee, or D) Something else (if so, what?) Thank you in advance!
Good afternoon, I have several intermingled questions about the authority of a standing committee. I chair a standing committee and fundraising is one of the tasks that is listed in our bylaws. Our chapter president told me that I am required to present a proposal, with details of the fundraising event, to our Chapter in order to get approval. The chapter president said a motion is needed for the event to be approved. My preliminary understanding of a standing committee is that the committee can move forward with tasks as established by the bylaws. Are motions for approval required for standing committees (or any committee) to execute events? Thanks!
