Resolution re-confirming the validity of the June 2012 PHCA officer election and the validity of the June 5th 2012 election of officers for the 2012-2013 PHCA session

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Whereas, the PHCA membership conducted the June 5th election in accordance with the bylaws, to the best of their ability and understanding, and independently of the current board

Whereas, the PHCA members undertook a fair and unbiased voting procedure

Whereas, no electoral fraud was evident before, during or after the voting process

Whereas, the currently elected board members have undertaken all procedures since election in good faith to all members of the PHCA, and in accordance with the bylaws of the PHCA and state and federal law, to the best of their ability

Now, therefore, let it be resolved, the PHCA membership, affirms the validity of the current PHCA board and asserts that vote conducted on the evening of June 5th 2012 was undertaken in a fair manner without any bias or fraud.

Be it further resolved, the PHCA membership invite those bearing a grievance against the Association or its officers to use the procedures laid out in the PHCA bylaws and Robert’s Rules of Order to clearly announce their case before the membership, and consult with the membership by making a motion for removal of a director, if necessary, in accordance with Article IV-5. of the PHCA bylaws:

  "An officer may be removed from office only for cause upon the written complaint of a member or members. Such complaint shall be submitted at a regular membership meeting. A hearing on the charge or charges, before the membership, shall be scheduled for the next regular membership meeting or at a special membership meeting not less than two weeks or more than six weeks after submission of the complaint and only after notice to the membership of said complaint. Disposition of the charge or charges shall be determined by secret, written ballot of three-fourths of the members present and voting."

Be it further resolved, the PHCA membership call on all those bearing a grievance against the Association or its officers  to utilize the PHCA procedural freedoms and rights, afforded equally to all members, to address their concerns.

Be it further resolved, the PHCA will endeavor to prepare and present a bylaw amendment at the December 2012 meeting which will address the proper, and correct, procedure in the case of a contested board member election result.
