Brant,
My thinking was that it's not possible to list every possible situation, so I only listed an example. By having the voting requirement higher than simple
majority, I figured that no one would be railroaded out simply because a few had issues with him. It would have to be serious enough that a supermajority
voted him out. If that many wanted someone out, then he should go. I know I would. If you feel strongly about this, then please vote to amend,
and provide some sample verbiage that you'd like to see included. If you do,
be prepared for others to second-guess you. That's the problem with trying
to list all possibilities.:wink[3]:

Basically if you do not abide by the Powerstroke.org COC as set up in the General by-laws - which you should read - or piss off the other members....basically if you don't play well with others, others may suggest to the directors and other members that they have a problem with you and if enough members seem to agree, a vote can be held to decide if you stay or go.
Its basic stuff i think.

Hey Brant, ( I hate email communication) I'm not pickin' at you. It really
is hard to list all possibilities, so my intent was to stay vague and general,
and trust to the common sense of the chapter to prevail. I still believe
in the decency of the individual to "do the right thing". :dunno:

I hear ya bud, and I definately agree to an extent, but also know that there needs to be "guidelines" so to speak or "examples" just so people know what is being looked for/at and that there isn't a huge gray area.. the more gray area, the more things can be stretched and abused.

I only bring these things up b/c kicking someone out is serious business imo -- i just don't want there to be questions left out there -- but, if no one else has teh concern or thinks all is well, then I will gracefully step back. I guess as long as should the occasion ever arrise, and we hope it never will, that then everything will be explained and listed out in detail...

I'm just here to help, and want to help make this a great chapter -- I am not trying to cause ripples or anything, just tryin to cover all the bases.. :)

Brant, i think if someone has a problem with another member, it will be discussed and they will know what actions were made in question. I don't think anyone will get booted for a first offense unless its serious and blatant.
Common sense stuff, if it feels wrong, it probably is.

Theres really no gray area if you follow that theory.
