Any member of the MCRCC may file a petition for removal of an Executive Committee member with the MCRCC Secretary. A special meeting of the Executive Committee shall be called no later than 30 days after the date of the filing to consider the petition.

The member in question shall be allowed the opportunity to refute the allegations made in the petition at a Special Meeting of the Executive Committee called for the purpose of determining the validity of such allegations.

A recommendation to the MCRCC for removal of the member in question shall require a simple majority vote of the Executive Committee members present. The individual in question is barred from this vote and is not to be considered when determining the presence of a quorum.

The Executive Committee on its affirmative vote to the petition must refer the removal of a member of the Executive Committee to the MCRCC for consideration at a regular meeting or special meeting called for that purpose.

Notice of the MCRCC meeting at which the removal of the Executive Committee member will be decided will be sent electronically or by USPS to the Executive Committee, members, and the Executive Committee member to be considered for removal, no later than 14 days prior to the meeting.

A quorum for the meeting at which the removal of an Executive Committee member is considered shall be a 2/3 majority of the members listed in the record of members in attendance at the call to order of the meeting and maintained by the Secretary.

Removal of a member of the Executive Committee requires a simple majority vote of the members present and eligible to vote at a regular or special meeting of the MCRCC called for that purpose.

The County Chair will present the findings of the Executive Committee at the meeting at which the removal of the member in question is considered. If the member in question is the County Chair, then the Vice-Chair will preside over the meeting. The member in question will be given an opportunity to offer information relative to the question of one’s removal or submit one’s resignation.

The Chair, or in the event the Chair is the member in question, the Vice-Chair, will then require a vote of the MCRCC on the removal from the Executive Committee of the member in question. If the vote is to remove the Executive Committee member, that member shall at that time surrender all documents and other materials in one's possession that are the property of the MCRCC. Should the vote not result in the removal of the member from the Executive Committee, the member shall resume one's duties.
