    Committee Conundrums

    Working in groups and committees is common, but meetings can be tedious. Find out the answers to your committee conundrums below. If you don’t see the answer to your conundrum, please send us your conundrum in the form below and we will do our best to answer it for you.

    Voting at the meeting​

    Question: There will be a vote on an important issue at our next committee meeting but I can’t attend in person. Can I still vote?

    Answer: The first thing to do is to check your constitution.

    You may be able to request to attend and vote online e.g. via zoom.

    Your constitution may also allow voting by proxy. A proxy vote is where you complete a form, providing another member who will be present to vote on your behalf. You should make it clear how you want that person to vote. They will generally have to provide the proxy form to the meeting chair at the beginning of the meeting.

    There may also be by-laws or standing orders for meetings that allow you to provide your vote in writing ahead of the meeting.
