Subject: Email Announcement From The CoDA Board
Date: September 19th 2020


To the Fellowship:


The Co-Dependents Anonymous Board of Trustees has unanimously decided to not implement CSC 2020 Motion Numbers 20030 and 20031 (Ad Hoc Committee Motions 4 and 5).  


Motion Number 20030: Replace existing chart of Co-Dependents Anonymous in FSM Part 1.


Motion Number 20031: Chart of current legal and organizational structure to be added to the FSM Part 5.


The Board’s decision is based upon legal advice regarding these two motions which is within the authority granted to the Board under the Co-Dependents Anonymous Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws as stated:  


A motion passes if it is accepted by a simple majority of the total number of Voting Members present. If it passes by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the total number of Voting Members present, it is binding upon the Trustees, except to the extent the implementation of such a motion would cause the Trustees to be in violation of the Board of Trustees’ legal responsibilities to the Corporation and its members or would put the fiscal integrity of the Corporation at risk. A simple majority is not binding on the Board of Trustees, although they may agree to be bound by the vote.”

CoDA Board of Trustees
