2014 Resolutions – 1 of 5

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Submitted by the NACCS Board


Membership Notification of Action to Remove Board Member for Non-compliance of Duties

Whereas, the NACCS Board must invoke the By-laws to remove an elected Board Member or to ask an elected Board Member to step down for non-compliance of duties, (Article 5, Section 2)

Whereas, the NACCS Board exercised such action in 2013 of an elected Board Member for Non-compliance of duties

Whereas, the NACCS Board relied upon the Bylaws which do not have a provision for next steps following the removal of a Board Member for Non-compliance of duties

Whereas, the NACCS Board did not announce such action following precedent set in October 2011 when the bylaws were used to ask a Board Member to step down due to non-compliance of duties

Whereas, the Board used commonly accepted professional standards to deliberate the personnel matters and decided to exercise confidentiality in regards to personnel matters

Whereas, during the 2014 annual meeting the NACCS Board met disapproval for not announcing the action

Therefore be it resolved, that in the event that the NACCS Board invokes the Bylaws (Article 5, Section 2) to remove a Board Member from the NACCS Board for non-compliance of duties in the future that a new section be added to the NACCS By-laws in the section: “Article 5: Officers, Terms of Office, and Duties” that will read as follows:

Article 5, Section 8: Membership Notification of Board Member Removal
In the event that the NACCS Board invokes Article 5, Section 2 of the NACCS By-laws regarding all nationally elected board members, the NACCS Board will immediately notify the membership of the action taken and cite the by-law section outlined above. The duties of the removed officer will be assigned to the remaining board members. The membership will receive notification through appropriate forms of communication used by NACCS.
