In a recent vote of the General Membership, we passed a change to our bylaws by a 65% majority. Our bylaws call for a simple majority to make chnges. One member suggested that Roberts Rules of Order took precedence over our own Club Bylaws and required at least a 2/3 or 3/4 majority. My question is simple: which takes precedence -- the Club's Bylaws or Roberts Rules??? Pkease help me.

Here's the simple answer. The bylaws supersede Robert's Rules of Order.

Can you pls tell me where in Rob Rules # 11 I can find the supporting rule for this??? Thank you so much.
