Prior to the Fall 2012 Convention, the AAMDC Board of Directors proposed an amendment to the AAMDC Bylaws to reflect a consistent process for establishing quorum as identified in the Resolution Process Policy (member login required). The membership was notified of the proposed amendment via district meetings and a member bulletin in late September.
The membership approved the following amendment to section D(8) of the AAMDC Bylaws at the Fall 2012 Convention:
Quorum for any Convention shall be constituted by Voting Delegate representation of fifty per cent (50%) plus one (1) of full members. No business other than the adjournment or termination of a Convention shall be conducted at a time while quorum is not present. This includes, but is not limited to, elections for President and Vice President, the acceptance of financial reports or other reports and presentations that require full member voting as identified by the Board. All Voting Delegates shall, on request by the individual designated by the Board to verify credentials, be required to furnish their credentials proving their election to office within their respective District.
The complete AAMDC Bylaws are attached and available on the AAMDC website by clicking here. The Board believes the AAMDC Bylaws demonstrate accountability through alignment to our practices and values the support of the membership in this process.
