Votes never implemented

If a vote (with a specific effective date) has been passed but was never implemented, can that same vote (with a changed effective date) be used to implement at a later date. Or, does that vote need to be raised again? Ex: a vote was passed to terminate an employee effective April 1, 2017; however, the chair and another member decided to forego implementation of that termination. Now, several months later the chair wants to use that same vote (updating the effective date to October 1, 2017) to move forward with the termination. Is that allowable or should another motion, and vote need to be made?

The chair can and should carry out the motion as soon as possible. Better late than never. It was improper for him to decide to forego implementation of the motion in the first place.

The adopted motion is in effect. The assembly could amend something previously adopted if it hasn't been executed. Or it could discipline the chair for not executing the motion.

Then I guess the question is: what is the status of an motion that invokes a deadline for its implementation if the action is never carried out.  Does the motion "expire"?

It remains valid. Motions do not expire. If the assembly no longer wishes for the motion to be carried out, the motion should be rescinded.
