inadequate notice of motion

Recommended Posts

if a motion is to change bylaws and refers to 'the law' as a reason for change, then at the meeting

'the law' is finally given (read but no hard copy), but this is inadequate notice given no chance of prior

review of the purported requirement  (and ultimately members were fooled into voting a change not in fact required

by law) - is there a basis for challenge in Robert's Rules of Order after the fact?  I understand that there is a

legal basis (mistake, misrepresentation etc) but wanted to know if Robert's has some basis to invalidate something

like that based on notice rules or any other procedure.

The motion is validly adopted if, and only if, all the procedures specified in your bylaws for their amendment were followed, including any requirement for proper notice of the proposed amendment. If it becomes clear that the change produced by this adopted amendment is not actually required by law, then the only way to 'invalidate' the change is to follow the procedures for amending the bylaws again to remove it from the bylaw language.
