Who's annoying the Humanists? Anyone know?There is a procedure for the Board of Directors to expel a member who has been causing a lot of trouble to the association. The proposed new Articles change this. The Board thought that a member who is not really a humanist, and is causing trouble at meetings or is giving a bad reputation to the HAI, is the kind of person it is most likely the association will need to remove. The criteria for expulsion would now include not complying with the principles of Humanism in the Memorandum of Association (which a person stated he or she supported at the time of joining up). The procedures are changed a little to give the person has a chance to tell the Board why he or she should not be expelled. The meeting of the Board that would vote to expel must have at least two thirds of directors present. There is also a new procedure for the Board of Directors to remove a person from being a Director.
