Quorum for general membership meetings

Recommended Posts

Our Board presides over our general membership meetings.  Some members claim we cannot count Board members to establish the required quorum.  My interpretation is that the Directors of the Board are members and should be counted toward the quorum.  Is this correct?

Well, yes they should count for quorum if they are members. But there is another problem.

The board does not attend the meeting as "The Board", and they certainly do not "preside". If they are all members than they are attending the meeting as individual members.

Holding an office does not give a member any more or any less (fewer?) rights than any other member at a membership meeting. The President and Secretary usually perform their roles at both board and general meetings, but that's it.

There can only be one presiding officer.  The Board has no business presiding over anything. They are not even in session at such a time.
