2017 Installation Task Force Charter

Committee Type: Task Force
Task Forces address a specific program or activity over the course of several months to a year. Creation or dissolution of a task force is at the discretion of the Board of Directors. Task Forces meet as needed.

Chair: Susan Horton

Mission Statement: The successful production of an event that will attract members and affiliates to celebrate the Board’s accomplishments and the combined strength of the real estate community.

Strategic Objectives:

  1. Provide a platform to highlight and recognize Real Estate Industry Professionals
  2. Support Staff to ensure event is successfully attended and kept within budget.
  3. Consult with the incoming President to produce the type of event that will compliment his/her theme for the year.
  4. Support staff's event marketing and sales efforts towards achieving sponsorship and ticket sales goals.

Scope:

  1. This strike force will be comprised of incoming President plus appointees of his/her choice that are active Affiliate or REALTOR members of ABoR
  2. This strike force will report to the Board in the quarters meetings are held.
  3. Meetings will be held as necessary, beginning no later than June and will conclude with a post-event meeting within 30 days of the event.
  4. The strike force members will work with staff liaison to develop event budget, location and sponsorship opportunities.
  5. The strike force will actively work to secure event sponsorship goals based on budget.
  6. Review and administer Annual Awards.

Board Committee Principles:

Board committees, when used, will be assigned so as to minimally interfere with the wholeness of the board’s job and so as never to interfere with delegation from board to CEO.

  1. Board committees are to help the board do its job. Committees ordinarily will assist the board by preparing policy alternatives and implications for board deliberation. Board committees are not to be created by the board to advise staff.
  1. Board committees may not speak or act for the board except when formally given such authority for specific and time‑limited purposes. Expectations and authority will be carefully stated in order not to conflict with authority delegated to the chief executive.
  1. Board committees cannot exercise authority over staff. Because the chief executive works for the full board, the CEO will not be required to obtain approval of a board committee before an executive action. In keeping with the board’s broader focus, board committees will normally not have direct dealings with current staff operations.
  1. Board committees are to avoid over‑identification with organizational parts rather than the whole. Therefore, a board committee which has helped the board create policy on some topic will not be used to monitor organizational performance on that same subject.
  1. This policy applies only to committees which are formed by board action, whether or not the committees include non‑board members. It does not apply to committees formed under the authority of the chief executive.

Committee Guidelines:

  1. The committee must follow the policies and values of the organization.
  2. The committee members must be an AFFILIATE OR REALTOR® member of the Austin Board of REALTORS®.
  3. The committee cannot conduct business without a quorum of committee members present (more than 50%).
  4. The chair is required to drop a volunteer committee member after 3 absences from regularly scheduled meetings. This provision may be waived by super majority ¾ vote.
  5. All members subject to censure or removal at the direction of the Board of Directors, under the Volunteer Commitment Agreement.
  6. The Committee, with a super majority ¾ vote, may censure or remove members of the Committee. Any discussion or action of censuring should be conducted during a “closed meeting.”
  7. Electronic Votes:

For electronic considerations, the Board of Directors require a valid process be followed for electronic votes.

  • All communication/votes in reference to an electronic vote shall be cc’d to all
    Committee Members
  • Each Committee Member shall cast their vote by 5:00 pm the day after distribution of the electronic consideration
  • No response shall be counted as an “abstention”
  • The day following the completion of an electronic vote, staff or Committee Chair shall report the roll call vote to all Committee Members
  • All Committee Members shall confirm their vote by end of day when the roll call vote is offered
  • If a Committee Member does not confirm his/her vote, the Committee Members vote shall be considered correct.
  • No Committee or Association Action shall be taken until the entire vote is confirmed.
