Who is eligible to vote and what constitutes a Quorum?
All members who have attained the age of fifteen are eligible to vote. One hundred members present in person and eligible to vote shall constitute a quorum at any business meeting. “Majority vote” or “majority vote of the members present and voting”, shall mean more than half of the votes cast by persons entitled to vote, excluding blanks or abstentions, at a meeting at which a quorum is present. It is expected that voting will be accomplished in person in a business meeting. Nevertheless, absentee voting will be administered via a process to be set up by the Business Administrator. Members voting absentee may register their vote in writing by filing a hand-written ballot with the Business Office prior to the meeting. The form of the ballot, deadline for filing and all other associated procedures shall be promulgated by the Business Administrator. Such vote shall be counted as cast the same as those of such members who were present in person but shall not count toward meeting quorum requirements.
Are Business Meetings Open to the Public?
All Church Business meetings, including Team, Trustee and Deacon Meetings shall be open to any Church member except for those matters which may require an executive session. Executive sessions shall be defined as meetings or portions of meetings for the purpose of (i) private consultation regarding Church legal matters; (ii) discussing purchase, exchange, lease, or value of real property; (iii) discussing contracts for prospective gifts or donations; (iv) discussing personnel or to hear complaints against personnel; (v) considering matters related to an individual child; (vi) discussing admission to, or withdrawal of, membership; or (vii) any other matter of similar nature.
