I like this! However, 5% seems a little low to pass amendments, no?
(If we have 50 members, that’s only 2.5 people…)
Wikipedia on Quorum: “Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised states that the quorum set in an organization’s bylaws ‘should approximate the largest number that can be depended on to attend any meeting except in very bad weather or other extremely unfavorable conditions.'”
Do we have data on past votes – we could see what number of votes we’ve averaged to establish that “depended on” number? Then set the percentage from there?
