A Board member should be expelled if there is a majority vote from all members (as opposed to just a Board vote).  This is one step to maintain a balance of power between the board and everyone else.  PsychoAU 10:32, 10 July 2009 (CDT)

Notes on voting in new members from meeting on 2009-6-30:

  • Majority of non-abstaining nay votes will cause vote to fail
  • Minimum 2 nays to table membership vote
  • A membership vote can only be tabled once. A second tabling causes a membership vote to fail.
  • Given less than 2 nays, majority of non-abstaining yay votes will cause vote to pass

We may need to clarify whether this only happens at a meeting, or other venues/methods of voting. It seems we'll have different rules for several kinds of votes. Dickie 10:19, 1 July 2009 (CDT)

The wording could be changed here to be closer to RRO: http://www.robertsrules.org/ In specific, by RRO, you can't Table something that has been voted on. Similarly you can't Withdraw a motion that has already gone to vote. You can 'Reconsider' a motion that has already failed. I would suggest changing this so that for Membership proposals/motions, 2 Nays results in a failed proposal that must be Reconsidered in X amount of time by any board member.
