Church secretary as "ex officio" member
by Isreal Jones

Is it common practice or generally acceptable for the church secretary to serve as an "ex officio" member with voting privilege, on all church committees? or
Is the church secretary an elected or appointed position in the church? Reply
I believe that the church secretary is an elected or appointed position, but I'm not fore sure. I included a little chapter I found on the internet about parliamentary procedure and meetings below.
Members of organizations generally ask the same questions about parliamentary procedure and meetings. Most questions concern voting, a quorum, the motion lay on the table, the agenda, minutes, bylaws, and what to do about a tyrannical presiding officer. If you have a question or a problem, the best advice is to look in your organization's bylaws and governing documents and then consult your parliamentary authority. The bylaws and other governing documents always take precedence over the parliamentary authority.
