Nominating Committee report in minutes


Libran

Recommended Posts

When the secretary writes the minutes of a meeting in which a nominating committee gives a report, placing candidates' names into nomination, how should that be reflected in the minutes?  Do the minutes just say "the Nominating Committee gave its report" (to be placed on file), or should they say that the Nominating Committee "nominated the following candidates" and list the office and the name?  If it's the latter, do the minutes reflect all the nominees who ran from the floor, too?  Or, do you skip any mention of the report (or any reports?) and just say who was elected? Thanks.

All that needs to go into the minutes is the full tellers report, which will include the name of each nominee, and the number of votes each nominee received, along with some other information, including the chair's declaration of the result of the vote for each office.  See RONR (11th ed.), p. 417
