How To Run A Meeeting

If you would like to know more about how Parliamentarian Procedure from Little Ben, click here for my DVD called How To Run A Meeting.

At our council meeting in April, the Council voted to hire a secretary. In May, we discussed the position and then created an ad hoc committee to set the standards for hiring a secretary(hrs, pay, responsibilities, etc) and to come back to the Council with the criteria for such a position. At the June Council meeting the ad hoc committee came back to the Council with a recommendation to combine the position and responsibilities with an intern position. The Council voted to accept the motion. My question is, was that vote legal assuming the ad hoc committee did not follow the charge of the original Council request? Can a board or Council change the structure of the original vote on hiring a secretary?

Dear Curt,
Yes the committee could propose a change. It was amending something previously adopted. If no previous notice was given, it should have been adopted either by a two -thirds vote or a majority of the entire council.

Cheerio,

Little Ben
