Golf Club Volunteers

According to our Club's bylaws, the Trustee is responsible for obtaining Chairpersons for our various Tournaments.

 

At the initial meeting the Trustee passed a form around with blank space for interested Chairpersons and "Volunteers only"  for various events.  

 

After meeting this form containing all the signups was emailed to all.

 

Weeks later some people contacted Trustee offering to volunteer to help.  She told them to contact Chairpersons since the original list wasn't being maintained for volunteers, but actually was just done for the first meeting.

 

One of the Chairladies decided not to use the volunteers who had signed up at the first meeting...Wanted to use her own volunteers instead.  She contacted Trustee and Trustee suggested that she use the volunteers in some capacity rather than ignore them totally.  

 

Chairperson never contacted the original volunteers and now they are really upset.  

 

Question:  Can the Chairperson choose her own volunteers or must she use those who signed up at the first meeting?  (Our Bylaws do not address volunteer situation at all.)

 

Thank you.

If the "volunteers" are not mentioned in the bylaws, and no motion was made on the subject, then I don't see anything parliamentarily improper about the Chairperson of a Tournament choosing whatever volunteers she may wish. Upsetting people isn't nice, but it's not against RONR.

Well said.

 

(And thanks for stopping the three- and seven-day-old replies.  I guess it was for getting up to speed after a hiatus.

(I got to say, what a joy to be writing here on a website where politeness like that doesn't flicker an eyebrow.  If I write like this on my biker gang or cannibal websites, they laugh.)
