Guest Claire Wagner Posted September 28, 2013 at 01:59 AM Report Share Posted September 28, 2013 at 01:59 AM Our Non Profit 501c3 began in 1973. Our bylaws are extremely simple. Over the years we have established a series of policies and procedures which were written from experiences of the membership, made through motions, seconded and voted upon by the elected officials of the corporation. These policies and procedures have been updated over the years, and recorded in a handbook so that we do not have to reinvent the wheel. Our policy, created in 1998, for the president's duties included that the president was to sit on all committees as an ex-officio member. In addition, the committee policy also states that the president is an ex-officio member of all committees, and that the board of directors can form committees and appoint members to sit on them.Our bylaws do not have any reference to how committees are appointed, who may or may not be on them, and only refer to a Nominating Committee and a Screening Committee (for the purpose of determining horses that are eligible to participate in our association activities).An amendment to the bylaws in 2006 states that "meetings shall be conducted in accordance with the most recent edition of Roberts Rules of Order Newly revised." My question is, do the policies and procedures stand as corporate guidelines when the bylaws are lacking any form of guidance? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
