  • The motion was divided to separate motions from minutes.
  • MOVED: As of 2004, all motions and announcements are either Lojban-only or bilingual - FAILED
  • Clarified by the chair: "bilingual" to mean "available in both Lojban language and English, both texts being equally authentic."

Session 2

 
The fifteenth Annual Meeting of the Members of The Logical Language Group, Inc. was called back to order on June 29, 2003 at 3:04 PM PDT

Members attending (18) were:

 

 
Members "present" (8) by proxy:

 

 
Members not in attendance (1) were:

 

  • One person not named

 
The roll call of members was foregone by consent. 26 members present or by proxy,

unknown absent - Quorum.

 
Old business:

  • MOVED: That meetings be bilingual, but motions and amendments be recorded in lojban (which does not preclude motions and amendments also being recorded in English). This is the second part of the divided motion from Session 1 - PASSED
  • Unfriendly Amendment A: In case of conflict, the original version of the motion and/or amendment (whichever language it is) shall be official - PASSED
  • Friendly Amendment B: The mover is responsible for the translation of their motions and amendments into lojban - PASSED without objection
  • Friendly Amendment C: Meetings are omnilingual, the mover of a main motion or amendment is responsible for having it translated into lojban, possibly through an intermediate language, and the original language version of the main motion and amendments shall be the official version. It does not appear that this amendment was ever voted on or passed w/o objection

 
There was a motion to end debate on Unfriendly Amendment A and go directly to a vote - PASSED, 17 in favour, 1 opposed, 1 abstention

Unfriendly Amendment A was passed - 15 in favour, 4 opposed, 4 abstentions

After much discussion of the amendments, the main motion passed, 18 in favour, 2 opposed, 3 abstentions

Discussion:

The chair noted that Virginia may take a different view from LLG on what is official, and insist on English translations of non-English bylaw changes, etc.

New Business:

The Founder role:

  • MOVED: That the honorary position of Founder be awarded to Jeff Taylor, Bob LeChevalier, Nora LeChevalier, John Clifford, and Tommy Whitlock, who may so sign LLG communications channels, such as the LLG official journal and members' list. This shall not confer voting privileges on the board or as members. While the Founders are free to articulate their vision and opinions, and to enjoy moral authority, the final decision-making power remains in the hands of the board and the membership. In particular, the founders do not usurp the president's role of representing the board, the membership, and the language community in general in public communications - PASSED by acclamation
  • Friendly Amendment: The LLG will engage in separate negotiations with each of the Founders to negotiate a role for the Founder that will be of the greatest mutual benefit - PASSED without objection

 
The chair extended his hearty congratulations to the Founders present.

Lojbanology:

  • MOVED: That any efforts by individuals or groups to develop a new language or version of the existing language other than under the direct auspices of the byfy is specifically disowned by LLG and shall not be associated with LLG - PASSED without objection
  • Friendly Amendment: That membership in such an effort does not disqualify one from membership in the LLG or the BPFK - PASSED without objection

 
The amendment to the next motion was declared to be conditional upon the passage of this motion, and so although the following motion and amendment were proposed first, they were tabled until this motion (9.D2) was addressed.

 
A 2 minute recess was requested for relief and consideration of the motion, due to the extent of the amendment.

 
At this point, Tommy Whitlock arrived at the home of Bob LeChevalier; due to limited computer access, Bob LeChevalier acted as Tommy Whitlock's "voice" from this point on in the IRC channel.

The vote passed 16 in favour, 3 opposed, 2 abstentions.

Local Lojban language Groups:

  • MOVED: That LLG recognize local and regional Lojban language User Groups, to be recognized and treated as Official Projects by the LLG Board, but given a distinct web page - PASSED without objection
  • Friendly Amendment A: That the term 'Local Lojbanist Groups?' be used instead of 'Local User Groups' - PASSED without objection
  • Friendly Amendment B: The LLG shall recognize local and regional Lojban language groups, and may reorganize them as Official Projects and give them a distinct web page, if so desired by the group in question - WITHDRAWN
  • Friendly Amendment C: With the local group's agreement - PASSED without objection

 
Discussion:

Arnt Johansen noted that the wording implied a level of control over local groups by the LLG that may not be desired by those groups.

It was noted that affiliation as an Official Project carries only the obligation to present regular reports on the activities of the project, and failure to do so incurs no greater penalty than de-recognition by the LLG.

Bob LeChevalier noted that he worded the original motion to set up a separate (web) page for user groups, distinct from the project page. Also noted that LLG offers web space to all projects, so in addition to a summary web page for users groups, Local Lojbanist Groups? would also be entitled to set up their own web page specific to the group.

Friendly Amendment B was withdrawn as a result of clarification of 'recognize' vs. 'reorganize' in the original motion.

 

  • MOVED: That the leaders of Local Lojbanist Groups? be given contact information on relevantly local Lojbanists by the Secretary on request, in order to contact present and past Lojbanists and potential Lojbanists to become active in the local group - PASSED without objection
  • Friendly Amendment A: where permitted by local law - PASSED without objection
  • Friendly Amendment B: that Lojbanists living in the area of the local group be given contact info for the organizer (rather than vice versa) - PASSED without objection

 
A motion to commit the motion to committee to study the legality of the exchange of personal information under local laws was withdrawn in favout of Friendly Amendment A.

Bylaws:

  • MOVED: That officers be elected by the members rather than the Board, and that election of officers precede the election of directors - FAILED due to lack of majority
  • Addenda: the phrase "proposal and approval of new members, who shall assume membership immediately if present at the next meeting" should read "proposal and approval of new members, who shall assume membership immediately if present at the current meeting" - ACCEPTED without objection

 
The final vote was 14 in favour, 7 opposed, with 6 abstentions

 

  • MOVED: That changing the text of Motion 9I1 from "Replace Article 5, Section 2, to read:" to "Replace Article 4, Section 2, to read:" does not require 15 days notice containing the explicit change to the Motion - PASSED

 
The final vote was 12 in favour, 2 opposed, with 5 abstentions

  • MOVED: That officers also serve as ex-officio directors - WITHDRAWN

 
Since this amendment was dependent on the previous amendment, it was withdrawn when the previous amendment failed.

  • MOVED: That a new office be created, effective 2004, which can only be filled by a Virginia resident. The office has no duties in particular. Holding the office is compatible with holding another office or directorship - PASSED The final vote was 21 in favour, none opposed, with 2 abstentions

 

  • MOVED: That The Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure , in its most recent version, be the Parliamentary Authority for the LLG (where not specifically overruled by the Bylaws, Articles of Incorporation, or relevant laws and statutes) - PASSED

 
Final vote: 20 in favour, 1 opposed, no abstentions

  • MOVED: (in summary) That all references to postal mail, telephone, and electronic mail throughout the bylaws be removed in favour of completely generic terms such as "notify" and "reasonable and customary forms of communication", unless they are specific exceptions to the principles of the section on Communications (such as a specific need for written notification) - TABLED until 9F (regarding proxies) resolved; FAILED

 
A motion to commit this motion to committee to determine the ramifications of allowing electronic communication was defeated, 5 in favour, 14 opposed, no abstentions.

 
The final vote was 17 in favour, 6 opposed, no abstentions

 

  • MOVED: Proxy voting is disallowed forthwith - FAILED

 

  • Friendly Amendment A: That this bylaw does not take effect until the completion of the annual meeting at which it is approved - PASSED without objection

 

  • Unfriendly Amendment B: Blind proxies are disallowed; proxies containing specific instructions are allowed; any proxy without specific instructions on a specific issue counts as a vote of "present" on that issue - PASSED

 
Amendment B passed 17 in favour, 5 opposed, no abstentions

The main motion (as amended to "no blind proxies") failed with 14 in favour, 9 opposed, with no abstentions. This means that the status quo - all proxies are allowed - remains in effect.

A motion to continue the meeting past the scheduled closing time was unanimously passed.

The chair ruled that no motions not on the original agenda were to be considered at the current session (in the interests of time). This ruling was appealed and the chair's ruling was sustained by the members, 12 in favour, 6 opposed, 2 abstentions

  • MOVED: To add "continuing involvement" to the list of qualifications for membership in the LLG as stated in the Bylaws.

 

  • Friendly Amendment A: To make this motion a resolution of principle rather than a bylaw amendment - PASSED without objection

 

  • Friendly Amendment B: Qualifications of both new and ongoing membership shall be high personal dedication to the purposes of The Logical Language Group, Inc as set forth in that Article, expressed interest in helping to manage the affairs of the community, continuing involvement in the activities of the community, and attendance in person at the AGM. Failure to satisfy some of these conditions is not necessarily a disqualification from membership, if some of the other conditions are satisfied to a sufficiently high degree." - PASSED as amended

 

  • Friendly Amendment C: To remove "in person" from Amendment B (to facilitate IRC meetings) - PASSED without objection

 

  • Unfriendly Amendment D: To replace "in person" in Amendment C with "not by proxy" - FAILED, 7 in favour, 14 opposed, no abstentions

 
The final vote was 17 in favour, 2 opposed, 3 abstentions

  • MOVED: (in summary) To amend the Bylaws to allow the Board to declare the resignation of a member for failure to meet the qualifications for sustaining membership if so ratified by the membership - PASSED

 

  • Friendly Amendment A: To demote the Bylaw Amendment to a statement of LLG principle - PASSED without objection

 

  • Friendly Amendment B: To add "or demonstrated participation in the Lojban language language community" to the list of qualifications - PASSED without objection

 
The final vote was 14 in favour, 4 opposed, 3 abstentions

  • MOVED: To add "to support the community of people learning and using this language" and "In the furtherance of its purposes as stated above, The Logical Language Group, Inc. shall place priority on support of the community of persons learning, using, experimenting with, and promoting the language known as "Lojban language - A Realization of Loglan" or alternatively 'Lojban'." to the statement of purpose of the LLG - PASSED unanimously

 
Committee and project reports:

The chair ruled that voting on the issues raised in the reports could be done on the members' list, and directed Bob LeChevalier to compose and send the appropriate email.

Resignation of non-attending members:

A vote to adjourn before addressing this issue was soundly defeated at this point.

The chair directed such votes to be held on the members' list with a call for discussion, followed by a 48 hour discussion period, followed by a call for votes which must be entered within 48 hours of the call for votes. The chair directed Robert LeChevalier to compose and send the appropriate email.
