How to Appeal a Committee Decision?


Recommended Posts

No rule in RONR grants the committee any sort of final authority in this matter.  They don't have to nominate him, but after they report at a meeting he can be nominated from the floor.  If the President rules that he's ineligible, that decision may be appealed and the membership decides.

In our bylaws the eligibility for office states, 

"eligibility for candidates for officer positions as follows:

a.  At least two (2) years seniority as a member, with at least one (1) year service on a committee or verified attendance of at least fifty percent (50%) of the general body meetings. Attendance will be determined by an attendance sign-up sheet maintained by the Secretary. The nominee must meet the requirements for attendance within the two (2) years prior to their nomination; and

b. Submission of an application for nomination endorsed by at least two (2) active members of the Association.

c.  Any Executive Officer having incurred a formal suspension, or having been charged with a criminal offense shall voluntarily resign his/her position on the DSA Executive Board for the remainder of their term"

The Member was on 3 committees for 4 years from 2010 to 2014.

Nomination committee is trying to apply the 2 year attendance rule within two years of nomination.
