PARLIAMENTARIAN OPINION ON MOTION 02-12 AND MOTION 05-19

(4 October 2005)  D. Joshua Taylor, Parliamentarian

”References:-Sturgis, Alice F. The Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure, 4th Edition. Blacklick, OH, USA: McGraw-Hill Professional, 2000; USGenWeb Advisory Board Minutes 2002, 2005; -USGenWeb By-Laws

”OPINION:

”This issue is complex, as it not only directly involves members of the USGenWeb Project, actions conducted by a previous advisory board, but also because it ventures in an area where USGenWeb policies are undefined, and at times are even non-existent.

”Motion 02-12, passed July 12, 2002 reads"

” ’I move to declare Teresa Lindquist a member not in good standing as she has exhibited total disregard and disrespect as evident in her public posting of executive session correspondence, betraying the trust of fellow board members and all members of the project that have brought concerns and grievances forward.’

”This motion references the term, "member not in good standing," and applies that status to an individual within the project. While the Advisory Board may have had perfectly legitimate reasons to declare the status of "member not in good standing" on someone, that action should be done in accordance with parliamentary procedure or standing rules of the organization, even when that individual may have violated both.

”USGenWeb has no formal policy on what a "member not in good standing means. .’On this issue Sturgis only states that, ‘Discipline may consist, for example, of requiring a member to appear before the governing board and explain certain actions or pay a fine, or a member may be reprimanded or
suspended from membership for a limited time. A membership can be terminated and a member expelled because of violation of an important duty to the organization, a breach of a fundamental rule or principle of the organization, or for any violation stated in the bylaws as a ground for expulsion. In general, termination of membership is justified if a member fails or refuses to work within the framework of the organization.’
(Sturgis, pg. 224)

”This brings up the issue of whether the term ‘member not in good standing’ is meant to suspend a member ‘from membership for a limited time’ or’terminated.because of violation of an important duty to the organization.’ While the original intention of the Advisory Board that passed the motion in
2002 cannot be known at this point, because the person in question has participated in the organization (both as a county coordinator, and on official USGenWeb lists) it therefore stands that the ‘member not in good standing" was a form of suspended ... membership.’ Sturgis is blatantly clear that such a suspension shall be ‘for a limited time.’ Because motion 02-12 does not state a time frame, we must conclude that the motion is not in accordance with Sturgis.

”The USGenWeb By-Laws state that, ‘In good standing is demonstrated by responding promptly to email, actively supporting researchers' efforts to find information, maintaining their website with appropriate, up-to-date content, and serving as a good example of the guidelines and standards of
The USGenWeb Project.’ Because USGenWeb has no official policy and procedures in dealing with regulations declaring members standings, we must conclude that any motion declaring a ‘member not in good standing’ by the USGenWeb Advisory Board must include a time frame.

”Just because a motion is in violation of Sturgis does not automatically nullify the motion. At this point, the only way to nullify motion 02-12 would be a vote to rescind the action. Sturgis states, ‘Any main motion that was passed, no matter how long before, may be rescinded unless as a result of the vote something has been done that the assembly cannot undo.  A motion to rescind requires a majority vote.’ (Sturgis pg. 42-43)

”With regards to motion 05-19, the motion, while appearing to try and correct the previous error did not go far enough to correct this problem. The passing of motion 05-19 would have only increased the problem, as it would appear that a motion declaring someone a ‘member not in good standing’ could
be created and ‘undone’ at the whim of the board.

”My recommendation, as parliamentarian, is for the USGenWeb Advisory Board to set guidelines and other procedures in relationship to ‘members not in good standing’ for future use. In addition, I suggest the board examine the possibility of rescinding motion 02-12, as it is in violation of
parliamentary procedure.

”SUMMARY:

”Because USGenWeb has no official policy and procedures in dealing with regulations declaring members standings, we must conclude that any motion declaring a ‘member not in good standing’ by the USGenWeb Advisory Board must include a time frame. My recommendation, as parliamentarian, is for the USGenWeb Advisory Board to set guidelines and other procedures in relationship to ‘members not in good standing’ for future use. In addition, I suggest the board examine the possibility of rescinding motion 02-12, as it is in violation of parliamentary procedure.”

”Informal Discussion:

”This Board will make full use of the concept of "Informal Consideration" as outlined by Sturgis, except that this "Informal Consideration," including all discussion on any other official list EXCEPT Board-L will be considered to occur outside of the regular Board meeting. Official votes may be conducted ONLY on the Board-L list, except for grievances or other issues involving an individual where official voting will be done in Board-Exec. This frees the participants to conduct straw votes on the other lists to determine the sense of the group. Informal Consideration will allow the members to discuss issues and frame motions without concern for the details of procedure that must be followed in the regular meeting.

RESIGNATION - AB MEMBER

(20 October 2005) By Jeffrey Scism

“Yes it does sound familiar, the primary difference being intent. I had no intent to publicly disclose "secret" messages.

”I accidentally released private emails to a public list, which broke the confidentiality agreement of the advisory board. I apologize to all parties concerned. The fact that it was accidental doesn't mitigate the
damage which has occurred.

”I regret that the situation will force me to leave the Advisory Board, and I ask that the NE region plan immediately to arrange for a replacement as their representative. Perhaps the next runner-up?

”It is my firm suggestion that the Board limit themselves to "executive" communications in only ONE mail list, and that all parties trim off the long trail of messages which everyone seems to forget to do.

”This incident apparently happened because my email address book added TWO addresses to the TO field, USGW-discuss and USGWconf-2 instead of the ONE I intended.

”The issue was compounded by Adelphia's blocking of list messages and multiple sub-unsubs because of that problem, and the responses being made to forwarded direct emails, rather than list delivered mail.

”I should have been more careful. My apologies, and it has been a pleasure working with you all

”I sincerely hope you consider some of the suggestions I have made in the past, but it is now up to you.

”Please remember, the more complicated the process the more prone to mistakes. (This was going to happen eventually, with so many lists discussing the same issue.)

“Jeffery G. Scism, IBSSG”



MOTION 05-20: REFUSAL TO ACCEPT MEMBER RESIGNATION

(20 October 2005) Moved by George Waller:
“I move that the Board also refuses to accept Jeff's resignation.”

(20 October 2005)  Seconded by Karen De Groote-Johnson

(20 October 2005)  Motion numbered by NC, and discussion opened.

(21 October 2005)  Motion withdrawn by author.

(21 October 2005)  Second withdrawn by Karen De Groote-Johnson.

(22 October 2005)  Motion declared null and void, by the NC.



MOTION 05-21: APPOINTMENT OF JEFF SCISM TO FILL VACANT SEAT

(21 October 2005) Moved by Bettie Wood:

“I move to appoint to Jeff Scism to fill the now vacant seat of NENC CC rep.”

(21 October 2005)  Seconded by Linda Blum-Barton

(22 October 2005)  Request by Larry Flesher for counsel from PA regarding the resignation and AB attempts to fill seat.

(22 October 2005)  NC announces delay in recognizing motion pending further consideration, and consultation with PA.

(22 October 2005) - NC ruling:

“I have spent time consulting with Josh and the following is the NC's ruling on Jeff's resignation.

”At this time the AB has agreed to work under Sturgis and although there are past instances where an AB member tendered his/her resignation and then withdrew it with the concurrence of the AB, we need to follow the rules we have agreed to follow and then work out a better way to handle future resignations.

”Under Sturgis a resignation is effective as soon as it is tendered unless the resignation includes a future effective date or the person resigning did not follow the procedures for resignation as established by the Board.

”Although it is customary for a chair to recognize and accept a resignation a chair cannot not accept a resignation unless the person resigning has not followed the procedures established by the Board for tendering a resignation.

”At this time the Board has no procedures and the by-laws are silent on resignations, therefore the guidelines in Sturgis must be followed.

”Jeff's e-mail did not include a future effective date and there are no resignation procedures in place therefore Jeff's resignation is effective as of his posting his resignation on Board-L.

”Due to Jeff's resignation his seat is now vacant.

”Under our by-laws the AB is to appoint a replacement to fill a vacant seat until the next regular election. In the past the AB has held preference polls and also appointed a replacement without a preference poll. This AB needs to decide which it wants to do and this must be decided before Bettie's motion to appoint Jeff to the vacant seat can be recognized.

”The question will be posted in a separate e-mail for your response.”

(23 October 2005)  Announcement by NC: Ten AB members agreed that the seat should be filled by direct appointment.

(23 October 2005)  Motion recognized by NC, numbered 05-21, and opened for discussion.

(25 October 2005)  Vote called by NC.

YES:  Suzanne Shephard, Larry Flesher, Darilee Bednar, Mike St. Clair, Jan Cortez, Bettie Wood, George Waller, Sundee Maynez, Angie Rayfield, Cyndie Enfinger, Karen De Groote-Johnson,
NO: none
ABSTAIN:  none
NOT VOTING:  David Morgan, Cyndie Enfinger

With 11 YES votes, 0 NO votes, 0 ABSTENTIONS, and 2 NOT VOTING, Motion 05-21 passed.

David is moderated because he chose to break the agreement he made to respect the confidentiality of the
AB lists. http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/BOARD/2005-09/1127941616
David has stated that his breach of confidence was deliberate and not accidental.

”Under the AB's standing procedure, "Permission to Speak"
http://www.usgenweb.com/volunteers/procedures.shtml David has the right to appeal this decision. He has refused the opportunity to return to Exec and exercise his right to appeal.

”David was moderated from all private AB lists last term because he released confidential AB information. With the seating of the new board in Sep David was again subbed to Exec and later to a 2nd private list.

”Being moderated means that David will be unable to participate in issues brought before the board that involves individuals that must be discussed privately, unable to serve on any committee that is not meeting openly or participate in any final decision of a grievance.

”David can continue to participate on Board-L and ABChat.”

 


MOTION - ADJOURN OCTOBER MEETING
