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
Our Bylaws state: Member: Defined as member in good standing. Member in good standing shall: (among other things) Have no active disciplinary action against him/her per the current disciplinary grievance policy. Question Background: We have a member who was placed on suspension by the BOD for one year in November 2019. She appealed the decision and had a hearing at a general membership meeting with a quorum. The membership upheld the suspension. Policy states the membership decision is final and the case is closed; however, she continues to fight the decision and has threatened legal action. Membership renewals close January 31. We received her membership renewal application and check. She is not allowed on the property for one year, or until November 2020. My interpretation of our Bylaws state she cannot be a member because she has an active disciplinary action against her. Question: Anyone see another interpretation of the Bylaws as stated? What do we do with her check?
Can a motion be made to suspend (or place a "hold") the constitution and bylaws of a Student Government Association? We generally don't meet quorum (we're working on that), but say we do, if it's absolutely necessary for this motion to be put in place, is it possible? How can I word that? I'll be trying to find as much information as I can before the General Assembly Meeting this next Wednesday.
I have a quick question. I know that a By-law which creates a rule of order can be suspended, just like any other rule of order, however would the organization, when creating such a By-law (or series of By-laws) could not add a statement that "Any Rules of Order found in theses By-laws cannot be suspended." I do not see a reason why this would not be allowed, especially as the By-laws would supersede anything found in RONR (in this case the rule about suspending rules of order.) I am thinking that any such statement would be acceptable, but I thought that I would ask for feedback. Thanks for any feedback.
