I think the concept works. It's the practice that members need to adopt, making a point of checking their views on a share at least once a week to be honest. Just after Richard's how did our shares perform this week message or if the secretary sends out reminders/posts the updated share chart to each thread - these are good nudges to action
I think this is all fair comment. I do think we need to consider how to handle matters when members don't vote for a while. I am conscious that one particular member of our club doesn't seem to have logged on to imutual since August, for example. This in itself probably shows something out of the ordinary may have occurred and I'm not entirely sure how we deal with such cases as that. I wouldn't want us to push members out of the club, as I can't see how that helps, especially as temporary disappearance cannot be helped on occasion. However, this one example does show we have a need to review the mechanics behind things to ensure the club can go about its business without being hindered.Beachboy wrote: ↑Thu Nov 14, 2019 8:32 pmOne possible area that might be worth reviweing is the number of voting members an how decisions are made. This is because we seem to have two members (I am assuming it is the same two members) that never seem to take part in any polls. This is obviously their right but does not help when we need half to support a motion for it to be passed.
The total membership stands at 15 and thus needs 8 members to support a proposal, however in reality there appears to be only a maximum of 13 active members (and sometimes even less). I am basing this on the fact that on the current three share monitoring polls which have been around for months (so no one can blame a lack of time) two have 13 votes and one 11 votes. I would have thought all members would have had a view whether they want to hold, sell or buy the share but apparently this is not the case and there might be good reason(s) no obvious to me why not.
Therefore is it worth giving 'non-active' members the option to opt out of voting in polls temporarily for the period of their choice (or be discounted after a period of time if they remain totally inactive) and thus aiding the chances slightly of getting conclusive poll results.
For example if the two apparent non-active members were to officially opt-out that would make the total votinng membership 13 (down from 15) and thus a majority would then be 7 members and not 8.
Non-active members could opt backin or be reactivated again on simple request.
