Committee Member Removal

Recommended Posts

Guest Jonathan

 It appears as though a committee member has been consulting with non board members and other members, not previously approved by board at the time the committee was assigned with the task of seeking resolution. Committee members were only approved to discuss topic of resolution with attorney as a committee. This particular member has not only contacted attorney on behalf of committee without informing other committee members, but also contacted non board affiliated members while claiming to act on behalf of the board. Further, this committee member has contacted only one party (in a two party member dispute) to inform them of the "claimed" actions of the board.

 

Thus, the question is: Under Roberts Rules of Order, Does the president, who appoints committee members, have the authority to remove, replace or reassign a committee member?

The right to remove comes with the right to appoint, so if the President appoints members, he/she can also remove members from the Comittee.  Page 177 of RONR 11th edition.

If the  President who appointed, is no longer the President...then what?

 

The President doesn't mean President Ed or President Gary, it means the person occupying the office of President.

Then he no longer has the right to remove.  But the new one certainly does, so there's no problem

 

The problem is there is no president.

The problem is there is no president.

Unless your rules say otherwise, if the President has left office mid-term (resignation, etc), then the Vice President (assuming there was one at the time) automatically elevates to President.  Was there no VP?  Do your rules specifically address filling a presidential vacancy in some other way?
