Guest Concerned Member Posted February 14, 2013 at 03:02 PM Report Share Posted February 14, 2013 at 03:02 PM At our meetings a membership log is kept to track attendance however, not all members sign in when attending a meeting. A motion was passed and a vote was on the floor presented to membership. Becasue all membership at the meeting did not sign in a quarum was not evident based on the attendance log and the vote was tabled. We have a bylaw that the attendance log is closed 30 min. after the start of a meeting. A motion was presented and passed and voted on requiring all membership attending a meeting must sign in or that member will be asked to leave. I have two concerns with this.First, the motion that passed and voted on took place well past the 30 min that is clearly stated in our bylaws. Either a vote was held without a quarum or membership signed in past the 30 min. Due to the voilation of the bylaw, can this motion and vote be upheld?Second, I have found nothing that states a membership must leave a membership meeting because that member is not signed in, no in our bylaws or in Roberts Rules. I would also believe that a members rights is being violated by not permitting that member to attend meetings. Am I correct? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
