2010 AMENDMENTS TO FLOTILLA STANDING RULES By action of the National Board at its August 2010 meeting, all present and future Flotilla Standing Rules have been amended. It will not be necessary to formally amend your current rules because by virtue of Paragraphs 2.1 and 2.3 of each Flotilla's Standing Rules the amendment becomes binding on the Flotilla without its approval. The proposals of the National Board were ratified by the Chief Director and published in an ALAUX sent on November 9, 2010. I suggest that each Flotilla append this notice to its current Standing Rules. The amendments are as follows: [underlined matter is new] *6.3A Nominations from the floor must receive a second or the nomination will fail. A member who is nominated from the floor must be present at the meeting and, after the nomination is duly seconded, must affirm orally that he or she (a) accepts the nominations and (2) will serve if elected. If the member fails to affirm both statements, the nomination will fail. Self nomination from the floor is not permitted, but a member who has been nominated by another member may second their own nomination. *6.4 The election of officers shall be by written ballot unless only one member is nominated to each elective office, in which event the Secretary may be directed by a voice vote to cast a single ballot on behalf of the members. In either case, a member does not have to be present at the election in order to be elected.
