  • In the event that any business is transacted at any district council meeting at which a quorum is not present, the action shall be deemed as valid as if a quorum were present if it thereafter is expressly approved in writing, personally, by mail, fax, e-mail, electronic transmission or other reasonable means, by the affirmative vote of a majority of the member clubs in the district on the basis of two (2) votes per club.

Voting Report

  • 267 survey entries

  • 16 “spoiled” ballots – voter not a CPRES/VPE or not eligible to vote

  • 251 eligible survey entries, totaling 261 votes

  • District Officers who were also Club President or VPE counted for multiple votes

    • 220 Club Votes

    • 31 District Leader Votes

    • 10 Club + District Leader Entries = 20 votes

  • The most important votes were CLUB votes!


  • As we do not yet have sufficient votes to meet quorum, the motions cannot be considered passed (yet)

  • Need more clubs to vote before quorum can be reached

  • Clubs that have not yet voted will be contacted to register a vote.

Lessons learned
Lessons Learned?

  • Committee should have been created to monitor the voting and tally results in timely manner

  • Follow-up with Division and Area Governors regarding Club Participation in voting could have been improved

  • Participation in District Council could have been reinforced during Club Officer Training, particularly for CPRES and CVPE
