Activities prior to final quorum count

Recommended Posts

We have had considerable converation concerning what actions may be handled between the initial quorum count and the final count.  Some indicate that everything is available to be discussed and voted upon.  Others state that only items, save the minutes, that do not require a vote are eligible to be presented and discussed; i.e., we may not vote upon an issue requiring a roll call vote nor election of offices.  The rational being that we do not have information available to ensure knowledge of the exact number of votes avaialbe and thus with members entering the hall following the initial call there may be more votes tallied than orginial annouce causing a possible call for a invail election/vote.


What is Robert's positiion on the subject?

RONR's position is that NO business of any kind may be transacted in the absence of a quorum, except for calling the meeting to order, adjourning the meeting, adjourning to a future time--presumably one when a quorum might be obtained, and taking other measures related to obtaining a quorum.


New business may not be introduced, unfinished business may not be discussed, essentially nothing can be done except seeking to get a quorum present, or giving up until another time.


It is possible your bylaws allow more leeway than this, but if they don't, then it is prohibited, regardless of how good an idea it might sound like to some member or another.
