The final day of the 2010 WACS congress in Santiago Chile started out with something of a dust-up. President Gissur Gudmundson opened the floor for Q&A and right out of the gate, Michael Ty, President of the American Culinary Federation challenged the vote of 4 bylaws suggesting that given the quorum of 60 they votes should not pass. There was spirited debate around the rooms about both the procedure and the issue at hand and finally it was resolved to revote on the 4 disputed items again. All four items passed and so, as I said before all the bylaws passed. Michael Ty did have a keen point, that the established quorum should (under normal parliamentary law) stand, while the board had only been counting the 2/3 majority based on votes in the room at the time of voting. Gissur did agree that the committee is planning on making a parliamentary post for future meetings and conferences.
