Notice of Meeting on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. CDT/8:00 a.m. MDT of the LARM Board of Directors Duly Elected on March 21, 2018.

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that on Wednesday, June 20, 2018, at 9 a.m. CDT, the League Association of Risk Management (LARM) will hold a meeting of the LARM Board of Directors duly elected on 3-21-18 in the Merlin Room at the Graduate Hotel, 141 North 9th Street, Lincoln, Nebr. An agenda of subjects known at this time is below, but the agenda shall be kept continually current and readily available for public inspection at the principal office of LARM during normal business hours at 1335 L Street, Lincoln, Nebraska. On June 15, 2018, notice of this meeting with the agenda and other materials were sent to all LARM members and the LARM Board of Directors duly elected on 3-21-18; notice of this meeting with the agenda and other materials are available for public inspection at 1335 L Street, in Lincoln, Nebraska; it also is posted on the League of Nebraska Municipalities’ Facebook page and its website relating to LARM – www.lonm.org.


A clear majority of the members who were present at the Special Meeting of LARM Members on March 21, 2018, voted to elect 15 members to the LARM Board of Directors on a vote of 61-1, with 11 members abstaining and 95 members absent. Attached are the minutes, which include the meeting notice, agenda, slate of nominees and sign-in sheets from all 12 meeting sites.

This election was necessary since not one of the current “purported” members of the LARM Board of Directors was properly elected by “participating members” at a “members meeting” as required by the Interlocal Agreement (Section 8.1.4.2.). The governing bodies of 57 LARM members forwarded to the League office their “Resolutions” calling for the Special Meeting of LARM Members on March 21 to elect a duly constituted LARM Board of Directors.

Pursuant to the Interlocal Agreement which your governing body approved to join LARM, the Executive Director of the League of Nebraska Municipalities is the “Administrator” of LARM. The League asked its outside counsel on LARM issues, Cline Williams Wright Johnson & Oldfather, L.L.P., for an opinion on the quorum issue. After researching the law, Cline Williams advised the League as follows:

The law recognizes a distinction between an act done by a definite body such as a board of directors, and an indefinite body, i.e., the members of an organization whose number is not fixed. In the case of a definite body, a majority must be present to constitute a quorum, and then a majority of the quorum may decide. In contrast, an act taken by the members themselves is valid if it is passed by a majority of those present at a legal meeting, no matter how small a portion they may constitute of the whole number entitled to be present. In such cases, those who stayed away from the meeting are presumed to have assented to the action of those who attended.

We have also examined LARM’s Interlocal Agreement and Bylaws. The Interlocal Agreement does not establish any required quorum for a meeting of members. The Bylaws recently approved by the unelected individuals who claim to serve as the “de facto” Directors of LARM removed all references to meetings of members and did not purport to establish any requirement for a quorum at a meeting of members. The prior version of the LARM Bylaws dated December 17, 2013 eliminated most references to an annual meeting of members, including the quorum requirement. The last time a quorum for a meeting of members was referenced in LARM Bylaws it was twenty-five percent (25%): “At any meeting of members, one-quarter of the members entitled to vote, represented in person shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business.”

In accordance with this rule (cited in the first indented paragraph above), and the opinion of the League’s counsel, the slate of nominees was elected at the Special Meeting of LARM Members and constitutes the duly elected LARM Board of Directors. Congratulations again to the 15 officials elected to the LARM Board of Directors!

Thanks to the 73 LARM members who took time from their busy schedules to participate in this Special Meeting of LARM Members on March 21! These 73 LARM members participated despite concerted efforts by LARM representatives to actively discourage LARM members from attending. Although several LARM members contacted the League office before the meeting expressing regret that they were unable to attend, their support to restore LARM to a membership-driven organization is most appreciated!
