ADOPTED EMERGENCY RULES
The emergency rules voted upon by this membership during the online voting period ending today passed! We had 58 eligible voters, more than quorum. The general, PCO, and endorsement rules passed unanimously. The resolution and officer rules passed 57-1.
There are five sets of rules which are described below:
- General Rules for Virtual Meetings and Electronic Voting: These are general rules for when and how in-person meetings will be cancelled, and general procedures for virtual meetings and electronic votes. Putting these rules here means we don’t have to repeat them in all the other separate rules.
- Emergency Resolution Rules: Rules for adopting resolutions during virtual meetings. These are similar to current practice, with more specific deadlines prior to the meeting to help make for efficient discussion during the meeting.
- Emergency PCO Appointment Rules: Rules providing for appointing PCOs by electronic vote outside of a meeting.
- Emergency Officer Election Rules: Rules providing for electing officers by electronic vote outside of a meeting.
- Emergency Endorsement Rules: Rules for making endorsements during virtual meetings. These are almost identical to the rules the 36th has used for years, with a few extra provisions for saving time on non-controversial endorsements during the meeting.
