No quorum established

Recommended Posts

In the absence of a quorum, the assembly can do these four things....and only these four things:


1.  Take action to obtain a quorum, such as calling absent members to try to get them to show up.

2.  Recess.  This can be used to wait on others to arrive or to start calling absent members.

3.  Fix the time to which to adjourn.  This schedules an "adjourned meeting" which can be, for example, the next night or the next week.  It is technically a continuation  of the same session.

4.  Adjourn.


Edited to add:  See pages 347-349 of RONR for more information on what can and cannot be done in the absence of a quorum.

Not many:  see p. 347.


You can recess, adjourn (of course), or "take measures to obtain a quorum" which often translates into sending someone out to the bar to coral enough folk into the meeting to make a quorum.


You can also set a time for an "adjourned meeting", but that presumes you will get enough folks to come out next time around.
