The NOrgs when meeting together in accordance with Articles V and VI are collectively referred to as the Membership.

Section 2:        Each NOrg shall determine its elected or appointed representatives. For proposes of these Bylaws, “Official Representative” shall mean the individual elected or appointed pursuant to a NOrg’s bylaws as the NOrg’s Official Representative to ONE-PS, and “Official Alternate” shall mean the individual elected or appointed pursuant to a NOrg’s bylaws as the NOrg’s Official Alternate to ONE-PS.

Section 3:        Each NOrg shall promptly notify the Secretary of ONE-PS and the Palm Springs Office of Neighborhoods of any changes of the NOrg’s Official Representative and Official Alternate to ONE-PS. Such notification shall include a statement from the secretary or other authorized officer of the NOrg and the minutes or excerpt thereof of the meeting of the NOrg’s governing body at which such Official Representative or Official Alternate was named.

Section 4:        As new neighborhoods are formed, or the boundaries of existing neighborhoods are modified, it is the policy of ONE-PS that neighborhood boundaries be drawn so as to be inclusive of the greatest number of residents as is practicable. New boundaries should not be drawn so as to restrict from membership residents that are economically more challenged than the majority of neighborhood residents or reside in homes atypical of the majority of homes within a neighborhood.

Article V – Membership Meetings

Section 1:        There shall be eleven regular monthly Membership meetings per year, unless otherwise decided by vote of the Membership in accordance with Article VI Section 1. The Membership meetings will occur on the second Thursday of each month (with the exception of August) at a place and time designated by the Board.

Minutes of Membership meetings will also be posted on the ONE-PS website following their adoption at a subsequent Membership meeting.

Section 3:        Official Representatives and Official Alternates may not discuss at a regular Membership meeting an item that was not previously placed upon the agenda for such meeting, except in the limited case set out below. New items can be raised during the meeting’s Membership comments section, and then put on the agenda for discussion at a future Membership meeting.

Section 4:        When the Chairperson determines that there is a need for immediate action that cannot reasonably wait for the next regularly scheduled Membership meeting, Official Representatives and Official Alternates may discuss at a regular meeting an item that was not previously placed on the agenda for such meeting. In order to take advantage of this agenda exception, the need for immediate action must have come to the attention of the Chairperson after the agenda had already been posted. The determination that a need for immediate action exists must be made by two-thirds of the NOrgs present at the Membership meeting.

Section 5:        Every agenda for a regular Membership meeting shall provide an opportunity for members of the public to directly address ONE-PS during a designated public comments period, with time limits not to exceed three minutes per speaker.

Serial meeting examples include electronic communications, daisy chain or “hub-and-spoke” telephone calls, etc. Nothing in these Bylaws prohibits communications among members of a NOrg or among members of two or more NOrgs on matters for which it is proposed that ONE-PS take official action.

Every agenda for a special Membership meeting shall provide an opportunity for members of the public to directly address ONE-PS during a designated public comments period, with time limits not to exceed three minutes per speaker. Comments will be accepted on any item that is already on the agenda for such meeting.

Section 9:        A quorum must be present at all Membership meetings, whether regular or special meetings. A quorum shall consist of at least 51 percent of all NOrgs.

Section 11:      The Chairperson, in consultation with the other Directors, may appoint and/or terminate a Parliamentarian for regular and special Membership meetings. The Parliamentarian shall be selected for his or her expertise in parliamentary procedure and may be an Official Representative or Official Alternate, but not a Director. The Parliamentarian shall make every effort to attend all regular and special Membership meetings and shall give advice on parliamentary procedure when called upon by the Chairperson. In the event of the absence of the Parliamentarian from a Membership meeting, the Chairperson may designate a Parliamentarian pro tem for that meeting, who shall be an Official Representative or Official Alternate, but not a Director.

Section 12:      Members of the public residing or owning property in Palm Springs may attend and participate in ONE-PS retreats. They may directly address the Membership at the beginning of the retreat on any item that is already on the retreat agenda or any item under the subject matter jurisdiction of ONE-PS, with time limits not to exceed three minutes per speaker.
