Re: new subject

From: AIS Policy Chairman <mlowe@worldiris.com>

Jim Loveland of Fenton MO asks...

>Is it legal to have an AIS Board member sit in on a local clubs board
>meeting at the time something is to be discussed pertaining to AIS?

Are you going to throw rocks, pies or bouquets?

Short answer, Yes.

Seriously, AIS, AIS Sections, Cooperating Societies, AIS Regions, and
nearly all AIS Affiliates and chapters are organized with a governing set
of parliamentary rules, usually 'Roberts Rules of Order, Newly Revised as
the authority in matters not otherwise covered in the organizations bylaws.

There are occasions where your club's governing board may wish to hold an
executive session, usually where presentation of an individual for an honor
or award is being discussed and decided. The secrecy of an executive
session protects individuals who are proposed but fail of selection for the
honor or award proposed. If your governing board excludes members and
guests from other matters of consideration than mentioned above it would be
advisable to have at least one lawyer under retainer, a substantial club
treasury and liability insurance that covers club officers and members.

>Also what if your local club president is an AIS Board member or Dir is it
>>legal for him or her to be present during the discussion pertaining to
>the AIS?

Absolutely yes unless you are prepared to demonstrate a conflict of
interest that would preclude the vote of the club president. The only
situation that readily comes to mind would be if your club had a
substantial donation to the AIS under consideration.
