Can a board reconsider at motion at the next meeting?
Our BOD made a decision in favor of a motion. The motion passed. The following monthly meeting, those Board members who were on the loosing side of the issue made a motion to rescind that motion. This time they prevailed and the motion failed. According to RRO Simplified and applied Second Edition page137, "Can reconsider on a negative vote". Was this a proper procedure?
They did not reconsider the vote. They used a different motion and the correct one--the motion to rescind. If adopted this motion repeals the motion that was adopted at the previous meeting. The question I have is how did they do it? If they lost the first time, did they change some board members minds? Very interesting. Another point, did they give previous notice that they were going to do this? If not then it takes a two-thirds vote to adopt the motion to rescind. So see if they followed the rules. They may not have won!
