Are board meetings held in executive session?
Hi Little Ben,
Your answers are awesome , you gave us what we need except one last question.
In our bylaws , it covers the regular membership meetings, like the annual, election, and so forth . But no where in the bylaws does it speak of our board meetings on whether they are closed or open to the general membership.
1. If no mention of board meetings is mentioned in our bylaws , do we refer to the Robert's Rule of order ? I assume board meetings are called executive sessions and are only for the board to attend when we have them every month ?
Thank you Little Ben, you have been a tremendous help ,we are grateful :)
My pleasure. Board meetings are to be closed meetings unless your bylaws require them to be open to the members. It's that simple.
From you awesome parliamentarian,
