Determination of Quorum

Recommended Posts

Guest Amelia

Our bylaws do not have a provision that defines quorum. At our meetings, we say that quorum is established.  How is quorum determined and established if we don't have a provision?  Is there some type of default percentage?  Thank you for any assistance.  Heading to Barnes and Noble this evening to pick up a new book!

Additionally, depending on the type of organization, there may be applicable state law. Many states have adopted a non-profit corporation act, and one of the provisions of this act may be a meeting quorum in cases where the organization's bylaws do not stipulate one. State law "trumps" Robert's Rules. You might need to check with an attorney.

What if your bylaws says a quorum is 15% of membership?

Then a quorum is 15% of the membership.

The original poster's question was what the quorum was if the bylaws did not specify a quorum.
