The Consent Agenda

Items from the Annual Meeting

  • Approve Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised as our official meeting protocol.
    • Wouldn't this require an amendment to the bylaws, which say "All meetings shall follow the MIBS Simplified Rules of Coordinated Consensus through Chaos as approved at an annual meeting." (Article III, Section 7)? -Katie 16:51, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Agreed. This cannot be changed. Serge
    • The Bylaws say we have to follow something called MIBS Simplified Rules of Coordinated Consensus through Chaos (Also known as the standing rules) that's approved at an annual meeting. I'm proposing to replace the current text the MIBS document with the text "All meetings shall follow the parliamentary rules of Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised." This should have been done at the annual meeting, but because of a motion to postpone votes not taken at the annual meeting, we can vote on it during a regular member meeting. Ben
  • Vote on Bylaws Change to Change the Regular Meeting Frequency to the second Tuesday of each month.
    • I believe this is also codified in the bylaws and thus cannot be changed. (Article III, Section 1) - Serge
    • This is why the vote is on a Bylaws change. It would work the same way the quorum bylaws change did. It won't take effect until 3/4 of the membership has signed on. Ben
