How to handle a Vacancy in Computing the quorum

Willie Watson

Recommended Posts

Below is a direct quote from the bylaws ( and the word quorum is not mentioned anywhere else in our bylaws, I did a word check). Two of the Directors on the Board have not yet been replaced.


Section 8.7       Quorum

At least one-third (1/3) of the Board of Directors must be present to constitute a quorum for the conduct of business.

Straying into bylaws interpretation, are we...

Well, this one is straightforward at least. Your quoted language quite clearly refers to a fraction of the Board. The Board of Directors comprises its members, and empty chairs are not members. So you compute quorum based on the current number of members.

It take it that you agree now that my question was appropriate and that an answer to the question is also appropriate? :)

BTW, I agree that based on the quoted provision from the bylaws, the quorum appears to be based on the current number of actual living, breathing members of the board and not on the total authorized membership of the board .
