Quorum rule changes
Vote recorded here: Meeting Notes 03-22-2011
Full Members have the option at any time to become Non-Voting Members, or thereafter to re-activate as a voting Full Member, by emailing our voting account (firstname.lastname@example.org) or notifying the Board of Directors. Non-Voting Members will not be counted when calculating whether quorum has been reached.
Full Members who have not attended a meeting or voted by proxy or in absentia for three consecutive months will automatically become Non-Voting Members until they re-activate by either voting or attending a meeting. Non-Voting Members who become Non-Voting by choice can only re-activate by emailing our voting account or by notifying the Board of Directors. As a convenience, Non-Voting Members *can* opt-in to voting for any issue without revoking their Non-Voting status. They will count toward quorum for any vote in which they participate.
Board members are not eligible to become Non-Voting Members. Records of member attendance and voting will be maintained by the Secretary.
