ARTICLE IV. MEETINGS AND ACTIVITIES

1. Regular meetings or activities may be held at such times as may be appropriate; however, a regularly scheduled meeting of the ExComm and a membership activity must be held at least once a quarter. Notice of meetings and activities shall be published in the newsletter or otherwise sent to each member and the RVC. A simple majority of all voting members of the ExComm constitutes a quorum to transact business.

2. Special ExComm meetings may be called at any time by the LocSec or by a majority of the ExComm, and shall be called upon receipt by any member of the ExComm of a petition made in writing signed by at least 10% of the membership of the local group as listed on the most recent membership roster provided by AML. The date, time, place, and purpose of the special meeting shall be announced in the newsletter (or by direct mail to each member and the RVC) if practicable, and shall be reported in the newsletter afterward. No business other than that indicated in the notice calling the meeting may be acted on.

3. Any one or more members of the ExComm may participate in a meeting of the ExComm by means of telephone, on-line conference, or similar communications equipment allowing all persons participating in the meeting to communicate with each other at the same time; participation by such means constitutes presence in person at the meeting.

4. All meetings of the ExComm shall be held within the geographical limits of the local group as assigned by the AMC.
