Power to call remove - Is call still valid?


Recommended Posts

Bylaws say that Committee A or Committee B can call a convention of the body.

Committee B passes a motion and issues a Call on March 10 for a Convention on April 30.

Committee A (which has the authority to do this) changes Bylaws to remove the power of Committee A to call a convention.

This is done on March 20 (after Committee B has already met and passed motion.)

Is the call still Valid, since the motion by A was valid when it was made? If not, can you point me to a reference.

If still valid, would Committee A need to pass a motion to rescind the call if they wanted to stop the process.

Assume the only thing bylaws say on subject are:

Convention can be called with 10 days notice.

Committee A or Committee B can call a convention of members.

Thanks again.

I think something is wrong here (and possibly elsewhere in the post as well), but I understand what you're getting at.

Is the call still Valid, since the motion by A was valid when it was made?

Yes.

If still valid, would Committee A need to pass a motion to rescind the call if they wanted to stop the process.

There is no procedure in RONR to "rescind" a call (or any other method to stop the process).

Thanks. That was my understanding just wanted a sanity check - since I am dealing with insane people :)

Sorry, Letters are all messed up.

Should read Committee B calls, A removes power from B. Is B call still valid since it was made when B had power?
