What is a naïve idiot? A naïve idiot is anybody who doesn't believe the RCSC Board is secretly meeting in between regularly scheduled board meetings to conduct business. And the current RCSC Board thinks we're idiots! I don't care if you call it a social gathering, a get together, a luncheon, or a coffee klatch. If enough board members are meeting to satisfy a quorum, and they are discussing business, taking action and making decisions, they are holding a meeting! Illegally I might add! And just so you know, Robert's Rules has modified rules for small boards, meetings where there are not more than about a dozen members. Here's one rule I find interesting: "When a proposal is perfectly clear to all present, a vote can be taken without a motion's having been introduced. Unless agreed to by unanimous consent, however, all proposed actions must be approved by vote under the same rules as in larger meetings, except that a vote can be taken initially by show of hands, which is often a better method in small meetings." I can just picture the board members all sitting around a table and after discussing one issue or another when Sue will suddenly ask, "So....what do you think," And all the stooges will raise their hands...hence unanimous consent! How the hell do you think those agenda items happened to show up on the September 13th board meeting agenda? They "supposedly" were in a recess for over two months! Somebody has to come up with the idea and get the rest of the Boards blessings, or do you think each Board member secretly and individually approaches the corporate secretary and asks, "Can you put this in the agenda?" and nobody else knows? Or do you think some corporate secretary, sitting all alone in his or her office and suddenly thought, "Gee, it's time for the next Board meeting. I think I'll find a way to eliminate the Annual Membership Meeting or change the word "Shall" to "May" in the Bylaws? Does the Board really think we're that stupid? Apparently they do and it's time to hold their feet to the fire.
