Thread: Motion 2011-03 (Amended) (Elimination of Life Governors)

    The meeting was extended once. The president could extend voting on this motion based on that precedent.

    Default On-line Meetings - No Quorum Required

    Hi Fred:

    The quote above is no longer correct. Bylaw # 3, s. 3 ( a ) was amended at the July AGM, such that the on-line meeting is the equivalent of an AGM re " constitutional " amendments. No quorum of 50 % is required now at an on-line meeting.

    I have sent you my recent correspondence with Bob G and Lyle on this.

    This is my best opinion, but as of yet I'm not sure who agrees with me.

    Lyle, you should be able to see the votes through the admin control panel. I'm sure I'll be able to flip it back to public, but I can't do that until the next time I'm at home (Thursday night).

    It's ironic because part of my reasons for introducing a similar motion in the past were due to the fact that inactive governors make it almost impossible to pass constitutional motions.

    Bob could possibly rule that this was in fact a "Meeting" and not simply an "Online Vote" and thus anyone present who did not vote is considered automatically to have abstained. So it would then be 19-1 with 22 abstentions, and pass.
