  1. Good evening! Does RONR address the definition of a "membership suspension"? It is as if I am no longer a member, not privy to any benefits? Am I held to any member obligations such as following the requirements on the membership application? Can formal charges be filed against me as a "suspended" member? Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer my questions! Megan
  2. In our organization, we have a "mother" organization with several associated regions who affiliate by annual dues. Within each region, there are several clubs. The regions are expected to be in conformity with the mother organization. Each club is expected to be in conformity with the regions.

" At our annual meeting in March, one of the Co-Presidents stated that because the members were not given at least two weeks notice, we would defer the election to the next regular meeting, which was held in April. The election was held at that time. Several questions have now arisen: -Was the election in April "legal" since our Bylaws call for the election to be held at our annual meeting? Is any fur
  6. In an Ecclesiastical association, a member has been judged guilty by the members. The members were asked to terminate membership, they voted no. They are being asked to consider suspension. Having said no to termination, what might be the proper justifications for suspension? How long of a suspension might be prudent for each scenario?
  7. A member of the society is charged with a severe crime, though nothing directly related to his membership. Many members feel that with this cloud over the member, it will damage the society for the charged member to continue his membership unimpaired. Still, many members are concerned about removing him if he should demonstrate that he did not commit the acts he is charged with in court. It could be argued that the charged member has engaged in "conduct tending to injure the good name of the organization," just be placing himself in a position where he was charged. 1.
