Chairwoman gets tough with delinquent clubs; Two clubs lose voting rights

At the Council of Clubs meeting on April 15, chairwoman Brandi Hoskins suspended the voting rights of the Table Tennis and French clubs.

According to council bylaws, if a club fails to attend two consecutive meetings without being excused before the meeting, the clubs lose their voting rights.

The Table Tennis Club had been excused from attending until further notice more than a month ago by former chairman John Price. Hoskins overruled the decision because their long absence was affecting quorum. The French Club has been absent from meetings since Feb. 25. Hoskins had not received communication from them regarding their absences.

Most club representatives left before the meeting ended.

After the meeting, Hoskins said the representatives had been excused.

Hoskins said the council will evaluate club attendance based on how many meetings representatives attend and whether they give reports.

She said she will discuss the exact criteria with members at the next council meeting.

Because quorum had not been met at the last meeting when members voted to spend up to $3,000 on the Spring Event, another vote was taken and the measure passed.

The Outdoor Adventure and Chess clubs were not represented at the meeting.
