Motion passed but not yet effective

Recommended Posts

If a motion was voted on and passed, but the effective date of the action contemplated in the motion is 3 months after the motion was passed (vote and passed in January, effective in March) is the motion considered adopted by the members the date it was voted on (but not effective) or is it adopted when it becomes effective?

Agreeing  with Mr. Huynh, there is no need for the date of adoption and the effective date to be the same.  Most legislation enacted by state legislatures, for example, has an effective date weeks or months in the future.   A motion is adopted on the date that it was, well, adopted.  The effective date can be a completely different date.

I agree with my colleagues above, but want to ask: is there some reason in this organization that it matters?  I understand why we care about the adopted date of legislation, and in many cases about motions in corporate boards, but why would we care in an ordinary organization?

If the provisions of this motion have not been carried out it can be Rescinded before taking effect.
