Act of the Board of Directors."
Here is a start to review Jean Dowling's motion at today's Del Assy -
UCO Bylaws 11/2/12
F. Quorum and Voting
"Unless otherwise provided in the Bylaws or otherwise required under the “Florida not-for-profit Corporation Act”, if a quorum is present when a vote is taken, the affirmative vote of a majority of the Delegates present is the act of the Board of Directors."
Here are the basic elements of Robert's Rules, used by most organizations:
1. Motion: To introduce a new piece of business or propose a decision or action, a motion must be made by a group member ("I move that......") A second motion must then also be made (raise your hand and say, "I second it.") After limited discussion the group then votes on the motion. A majority vote is required for the motion to pass (or quorum as specified in your bylaws.)
I believe that the Board of Directors has now voted 4 times NOT to give money to Golf/PRPC related legal causes. We have agreed they will operate on donations which allows for wide variations of individual opinions.
