Background

It's my opinion that the following three pseudo policies are invalid because they were not voted on by the general membership:


Quite a few people have said that they want both the membership to run the space, and also want the BoD to have the ability to protect it quickly. If the BoD can create temporary policies than need to be validated by a membership vote later, that seems to satisfy both of these interests.

Language

Policies may be set by the board of directors, so long as the policy expires 3 weeks after being voted on.

All policies voted on and passed by the BoD automatically become vote proposals for the membership to vote on to confirm. At least one week must be allowed for the policy to be adjusted. After that week, normal membership voting rules apply.

If the vote to confirm is held, and quorum is not reached, the temporary policy is automatically extended by 1 week.
