AB-16-23: Motion to rescind AB16-22

Region 3 makes the motion to rescind Admiralty Board resolution 16-22 on the basis that SFI is not able, at this time, to procure actionable data from our database either to execute the resolution correctly within the allotted time given in said resolution, nor conduct a proper financial impact of that resolution. The Executive committee, especially the CompOps department, is to be commended for their continued and ongoing efforts in attempting to extract the required data from a database that they (and those before them) inherited and has only grown worse with time.

The Executive Committee is still directed to work toward obtaining proper, actionable data to support future efforts to reimburse members holding primary members who paid for print memberships between 1 January 2014 and 14 February 2016. The Admiralty Board WILL readdress this issue once proper data and a financial impact assessment has been conducted and presented. The Admiralty Board apologizes for acting in haste in its adoption of resolution 16-22 without verifying that the required information was before us.

AB16-19 Motion to approve the amendment of 5.08 of the bylaws

September 05, 2015

Motion to approve the following change in the bylaws to be applicable for the 2019 STARFLEET Election Section 5.8 Additional Voting Declaration At all meetings of the Board of Directors, the vote of each Director shall be cast by live voting, either in person or via live communication means. “Representatives in Abstencia” are permitted but do not have voting rights as written in Robert’s Rules of Order. These representatives may add to the discussion at hand. There is no provision for Proxy Voting. If at such time State Laws provide for Proxy Voting then a Proxy Representative of a Director shall be registered with the Vice President/Secretary three days prior to any meeting and identified at the time of Roll Call with a reminder of the rules of abstencia representation. A representative purporting to be executed by or on behalf of a Director shall be deemed valid unless challenged at or prior to its exercise, in which event the burden of proving invalidity shall rest on the challenger. Further rules and requirements for abstencia voting shall be set forth in the Membership Handbook. If this motion should it pass will better define the participants of the Meetings of the Board of Directors leaving open for future changes and direct the IG to prepare to place this on the election ballot for approval by the membership.
