Section 2. Notice of each meeting shall be sent to all members of the Executive Board at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of the meeting. A proposed agenda must be enclosed, though this shall not limit the business that may be addressed by the Executive Board.

Section 3. Quorum for Executive Board meetings shall be all elected MFCR officers or one-half (1/2) of all Executive Board members.

Section 4. Any member which fails to be present at three consecutive Executive Board meetings will forfeit its vote on the Executive Board until it presents a letter from the club chairman stating the club is active and receives three-fourths (3/4) vote of approval by the Executive Board members.

    Part 1. This relates solely to the club's Executive Board vote and does not constitute action against the club's membership in the federation.

    Part 2. Upon the second consecutive absence of a club, the Secretary shall notify the club by registered mail, of this section. The call for the next Executive Board meeting shall be included in this mailing. No club shall forfeit its vote without having received timely notice, as defined by this article.
