Guest Lindsey Posted April 13, 2015 at 04:11 PM Report Share Posted April 13, 2015 at 04:11 PM Good morning, We have our state annual conference coming up next month and I have a question pertaining to delegates and non-delegates. At our nominations and elections night, we nominate six people to attend annual conference; three are delegates and three are non-delegates. The non-delegates would sit in if something happened to one of the delegates and we have had instances where delegates got sick the night before or were late attending conference where we have had to seat an alternate. It is announced on election night that anyone accepting the nomination would attend conference, but our standing rules state that only delegates will be reimbursed; alternates would be reimbursed if they had to be seated. It does not state anywhere in the bylaws or standing rules that delegates and alternate delegates MUST attend conference, even though that is announced at the time of nominations. So now, our Governor has told the alternate delegates that they don't have to attend conference ... this is the first time this has happened ever or for at least as long as I've been a member which is over 15 years. Is there is anything in Roberts Rules that says delegates and alternates MUST attend conference? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much!
