- We had legal advice to postpone the meeting as we are clearly not ready, but we ignored that advice, please summarize how that decision was made and why?
- We have no "rules of order" in section 8 of our current or proposed bylaws to guide our meeting process and maintain order
- What rules will be being used for the annual meeting?, and why has this information not been made public, requests aside, the membership should be informed as to how the meeting will be conducted?
- Why are we passing bylaws without a reference set of "rules of order"? My experience from past meetings points to a dire need for such rules
- I wish to bring a motion to table the vote on the Articles of Incorporation and the Bylaws. I'd like that known as I don't know that I'll be able to make any motions during the meeting, (see above)
There are changes I'd like to see in the bylaws, but they are my opinion. What has been missing in this process is the time to discuss the these issues with the group at large, before the rules are enacted. What I want is the time to discuss the bylaws with the membership. I don't believe I have "the" answer, but I do feel that the currently proposed bylaws are flawed and not appropriate for our organization, I'd like the time and forum to make that case to the membership, and don't feel that threads on a forum or an email blast to the membership can accomplish this.
