SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING

Recommended Posts

can anyone advise if a special general meeting is called and is found to be invalid,can another be called in within 12 months for the same reasons?

Special meetings (assuming you're using the term as defined in RONR) can only be held if authorized in the bylaws, which should include at least who is authorized to call them (the Board, the President, a certain number of members, that sort of thing) and the number of days for the required notice that must be sent to all members in advance of the meeting. RONR contains no restriction to holding only one within 12 months, although your bylaws might, so you need to take a careful read through them to see where you stand. See RONR (11th Ed.) page 91 and forward for details. As for what makes a special meeting "invalid", well........ who knows?

Special meetings can only be called in accordance with the bylaws (or higher governing document). Check there.

See RONR (11th ed.), pp. 91-93 for the details of special meetings.

If a director or multiple directors call for a special meeting of the board that is in accordance with the bylaws, who is in charge of the meeting? Is run as a regular board meeting by the president or is it run by the directors that called the special board meeting?

If present, the president would usually preside (though the board could suspend the rules and select someone else).

The fact that the meeting will be a special meeting rather than a regular meeting, in and of itself, has no bearing upon who presides. In this regard, it is treated the same way as any other meeting of the board.
