Should the 2 Membership Informational Meetings be changed to Formal Meetings?
Yes, the members need the opportunity to make motions outside the Board of Directors.
 21%  [ 7 ]
No, contacting a WGA Director for representation on issues is an adequate procedure.
 69%  [ 23 ]
One Formal and 1 Informational meeting would be preferred, to give members an opportunity to take action outside of the Board of Directors.

Currently, the WGA holds 2 informal membership meetings; one at the Campout and one at the Picnic.

Would you like either of these to be formal meetings, with a posted agenda and the opportunity for members to move to action by the membership outside of the Board of Directors?

Article VI: General Membership Meetings
General membership meetings will be held annually at a minimum, or more often if required. All members and interested parties are invited to attend and participate in the general membership meetings. All general membership meetings will be conducted in accordance with Robert's Rules of Order, latest edition.

The purpose of the general membership meetings shall be to discuss and approve current and future initiatives, solicit involvement and provide a forum for the exchange of information among members. Agenda items may include cache hunts, slide shows or video tapes of geocaching areas and activities, or educational presentations.

Keep On Cachin In The Free World.

While I am not an expert on Robert's Rules of Order, but would that not require the meeting(s) to be conducted much like any other formal meeting. That would include a formal agenda, reading/approval of the minutes, motions/seconds, etc.?
