Board Decisions Incumbent on New Board

Guest Bob

Recommended Posts

Keep in mind that a motion to rescind or amend something previously adopted has special vote requirements. If previous notice of the motion is given, it can be adopted with a regular majority vote. However, if previous notice is not given, it requires either a two-thirds bote or the vote of a majority of the entire membership.

In this case, the membership would be the membership of the board, rather than the membership of the organization, at least if it is the board that will be taking the action.

In the case of a board, a majority of the entire membership may actually be a smaller number than would be required for a 2/3 vote. That would be especially so if all members are in attendance.
