Does Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (11th Edition) recommend that boards be composed of an odd number of members? (difficulty level - 3)
No. Though many people believe that boards are compelled to have an odd number of members, no such language exists in Robert's. This is likely do the fact that in Robert's, most votes are based on a percentage of members present and voting. In other words, if a board has 6 members, but one member is absent, the vote will be based on those present, and not a total possible number of board members.
