Amendment to the Bylaws of the Board of Trustees (Advance Notice of Motions and Resolutions)
(2) The secretary of the board has prepared the following amendment 1 to the Bylaws of the board. The amendment will ensure advance notice to all trustees when approval of a motion, resolution, or other proposition is being sought. The amendment, as recommended, is as follows:2 Article III, Section 2. Any member of the Board may request that motions, resolutions, or other propositions be reduced to writing before being voted on (except usual, short parliamentary motions). Motions, resolutions, or other propositions involving policy matters presented by a member or members of the Board must be transmitted to the members of the Board at least 24 hours prior to a Board meeting at which approval of such proposition is sought. (The amendment will become effective with the February 1993 meeting.)
On motion of Mr. Lamont, this recommendation was not approved. By consensus, the board agreed that one vote would be taken and considered the vote on each agenda item nos. 3 through 19 inclusive. The recommendations were individually discussed but acted upon at one time. (The record of board action appears at the end of each item.)
