Bruce Lages Posted July 1, 2014 at 06:54 PM Report Share Posted July 1, 2014 at 06:54 PM In a related thread on the General Discussion board, Shmuel Gerber brought up the stipulation in RONR that when the chair appoints members to a committee, those names must be announced to the assembly, and "until such announcement is made, the committee cannot act." (p. 496, ll.8-11) I have two questions regarding this statement: 1) Are the words "the committee may not act" interpreted to mean that the committee may not conduct any business, or that the committee may not even meet? 2) Is the requirement for the appointments to be announced to the assembly simply a pro forma notice to the assembly, or does this imply that. even when the bylaws stipulate that the chair has the authority to appoint committee members, the assembly has some ability to alter such appointments?
