Guest pucksfurcoat Posted August 18, 2014 at 12:32 AM Report Share Posted August 18, 2014 at 12:32 AM I am a Board member of a National organization that holds a general meeting once a year, preferably in conjunction with a specific annual event we hold (this is stated in our current bylaws). This event has, and will be in the future, held at a single location per the BOD (not covered in the bylaws). A General Meeting has been held every year at this event, but the last time there was a quorum was in 1999. A Board member recently discovered an approved motion from 1999 and it appears that we have not been following what was dictated in that motion for many many years. The club population is significantly different than it was in 1999. Some of the motions approved back in that time are not appropriate currently. I suspect that we are stuck with any motion approved 1999 prior until we can get a quorum, or change the bylaws - do folks agree? If this is the case, I anticipate another issue - the only opportunity for input from the membership is at a single meeting that most members do not, and cannot realistically attend because of geography and related travel costs. Does anyone have suggestions on how I might propose to handle this? I would like to see a mechanism for members as a whole to have input on important issues. Our bylaws default to Roberts Rules if not specifically covered in the bylaws. Thanks in advance for your help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
