Objection to Committee Appointment

Recommended Posts

According to the by-laws of an organization I am in, Board Committees shall be appointed by the Board President at the organizational meeting of the board. Temporary committees may be appointed for a specific purpose at any special regular meeting as well.  

Is there a procedural way for a board member to make a motion to object the appointment of a member to a committee?

A board member could make a motion objecting to the appointment of a member to a committee. If adopted, this motion would express the board’s opinion that this person should not be appointed to the committee.

Unless the bylaws are amended, however, the President is still free to appoint this person, notwithstanding the board’s objection. If the bylaws authorize the President to appoint committee members, there is no way for the board to stop the President from appointing someone.
