All procedures for elections will take-on the following format:
At the final General Assembly meeting prior to Winter Quarter Finals week, there shall be nominations for only the three Co-Coordinating positions. The Secretary must retain a record of all who wish to be candidates on a nomination sheet. A maximum of six candidates are allowed to partake in the election. In the event there are more than six candidates for the positions, a Primary Election must be held to elect six candidates to run in the election. In the event only three candidates are nominated a formal election must still be held so that formal election results can be obtained.
The Primary election must be held on the first General Assembly meeting of Spring Quarter. All full members may vote in the Primary but are not obligated to do so. The Recruitment and Retention Officer must print and copy all Ballots, Run-Off Ballots, a Tally Sheet, and a Sign Up Sheet and a Final Result Sheet and presents them to the Secretary at the beginning of the meeting. Every member who wishes to participate must sign his name on the Sign Up Sheet (which shall be created from the official fellowship roster) held by the Recruitment and Retention Officer, and each member will then be given one ballot. The Recruitment and Retention will preside over the Primary election and distribute and collect all ballots. All ballots must be anonymous and no one may be forced to reveal the content of his ballot.The ballots will list every candidate’s name and each voter must choose six candidates to participate in the formal election of the Co-Coordinators. Any desecration of any ballots or any ballot that chooses more than six candidates will be voided and discarded by the Recruitment and Retention Officer. The Recruitment and Retention Officer will tally all ballots in private and present the results to the General Assembly. The six candidates that receive the top number of votes will receive the nominations to participate in the Co-Coordinating election. In the event there is a tie a Run-Off Election will be held at that same meeting. The candidate that receives the most votes in the Run-Off Election will be awarded the nomination. Successive run-off elections must be held until a candidate is chosen. At the end of the Primary Election all Ballots, Run-Off Ballots, Tally Sheets and the Sign up Sheet and Final Results sheet must be given to the Historian by the Recruitment and Retention Officer.
In the event there is a Primary Election the election for the three Co-Coordinating positions will be held the following General Assembly meeting. If there is no Primary Election then the election of the three Co-Coordinators must be held at the first General Assembly meeting of Spring Quarter. The Recruitment and Retention Officer must print and copy all Ballots, Run-off Ballots, a Sign Up Sheet and Tally Sheet and a Final Result Sheet and presents them to the Secretary. All full members may vote if they choose to and all ballots will be anonymous. All members must sign the sign up sheet in order to receive a ballot. Each voter will choose a total of three candidates for the three Co-Coordinating positions available. Any ballot that is desecrated or fails to choose exactly three candidates will be voided and discarded by the Recruitment and Retention Officer who will be counting the ballots in private. The candidates that receive the top three numbers of votes will become the new Co-Coordinators. In the event there is a tie a Run-Off Election must be held to determine the third position available. The Recruitment and Retention Officer will distribute run-off ballots and will tally the result in private. Successive run-off elections must be held until there is an officer chosen. At the end of the election all Ballots, Run-Off Ballots, the Tally Sheet, Sign Up Sheet and Final Results Sheet must be turned over to one of the Historian by the Recruitment and Retention Officer. At this same meeting nominations will be taken by the Secretary for all other Executive Council positions. Any member, even a candidate who did not win a Co-Coordinating position, may run for any other office.
After the Co-Coordinators are chosen the elections for all other Executive Offices will take place during the General Assembly meeting following that election. The Recruitment and Retention Officer will print and copy all ballots, run-off ballots, a tally sheet, sign up sheet and a final result sheet and presents them to the Secretary. All ballots must contain all positions and every candidate for each of the respective positions. All full members may vote if they choose to and must sign the sign up sheet to receive a ballot. Any desecration of any ballot will result in that ballot being voided and will be discarded by the Recruitment and Retention Officer when they tally’s the remainder of the ballots in private.The candidates that receive the most votes for every position will become the new officers for those respective positions. In the event there are any ties the Recruitment and Retention Officer will distribute the run-off ballots and collect them and tally the results in private. The candidate that receives the most votes will become the new officer of that position. Successive run-off elections must be held until all positions on the Executive Council are filled. The Recruitment and Retention Officer will give all ballots, run-off ballots, the tally sheet, sign up sheet, and final results sheet to one of the Historian at the end of the election.
For all Elections, a fellow Executive Council Officer shall accompany the Recruitment and Retention Officer in the Tallying of ballots, which will take place in private.
In the event any officer resigns or is impeached or passes away during office the following procedure will be used for a Special Election. The week after the office position is opened nominations will be held. If the position vacated is one of the Co-Coordinating offices then a maximum of three candidates will be allowed to participate in the election. A primary election must be held if more than three candidates choose to run. The formal election will be held the following week. If the position is any other Executive position than an election will be held at that following meeting. All other election protocol will be implemented accordingly.
In order to amend the Constitution in any manner the following procedure must be used. Any Amendment to the Constitution must be formally written and presented to or by any Executive Council Officer. At any designated Executive Council meeting all officers must be present in order to pass any Amendment. A vote will be tallied by the Secretary and three-fourths of the entire council must vote yes in order to proceed tot he next step. If the proposal passes the Executive Council, then another vote must be taken before the General Assembly. At least three-fourths of the entire full membership must be present and vote on the proposal. The secretary must tally a vote and three-fourths of the General Assembly present must vote yes in order to make the proposal an Amendment. The Historian will add all new Amendments to the ongoing Constitution and will add a permanent copy to the original constitution.
In the event any officer does not adequately fulfill the duties of his position or violates the Constitution or any By-Law or neglects the true spirit of the organization, Impeachment proceedings may be implemented. Any member may begin the process of impeachment. A formal written grievance must be presented to any council member with all reasons stated as to the need for Impeachment. The entire council must be present in order to insure implementation of the Hermanos Macehual Constitutional (Article IV) impeachment proceedings. It is necessary to remove all obstacles halting the voting procedure. In the event of any Executive Council Member/s absence from the primary/first General Assembly impeachment meeting, the power of impeachment will be absolved to the General Assembly, if there is any single Executive Council member/s still absent by the second impeachment meeting. At which point, Hermanos Macehual General Assembly has the respectable authority to a consensus vote (majority rule) on whether or not to follow through with the Impeachment proceedings. In conclusion, if the requirements above have been fulfilled then the Executive Council Member/s has with consent waived and/or forfeited their right/s and voice under Article IV. The defendant or anyone else can make a defense at that time. Any board member or the General Assembly in this meeting may ask questions. The defendant must then leave. A pro and con discussion must ensue and a decision rendered. A three-fourths vote of yes must take place in order to impeach that officer. The Recruitment and Retention Officer will take a vote count and report it to the Secretary. No voter’s decision can be revealed. If the officer is impeached then the position must be immediately filled by a Special Election. Once a member is impeached and leaves office then he may never hold another Executive Council Position.
No Amendment or By-Law can be passed to eliminate any of the Articles of this Constitution. The substance of the Articles may be changed, however, through the amendment process but the basic structure of this Constitution shall remain the same. This Constitution also gives the governing body the power to create any constitutional legislation that will become necessary through the creation of By-Laws of the fellowship. All proposals for By-Laws must be written and presented to the Executive Council to be voted upon. The voting procedure for any By-Law can be enacted or repealed by a simple majority vote with a least fifty- percent of the members present to vote at any General Assembly meeting. No By-Law can be passed that is in conflict with the Constitution. All laws of the Constitution shall supersede all By-Laws that are passed. The By-Law section of this Constitution shall be taken and possessed by the Historian.
There shall exist a senior advisor(s). This position is created for past Co-Coordinators having held the position of Co-Coordinator for two terms and not wishing to hold an official Executive Council Office. Their function will be solely to act as an advisor to the Executive Council without being able to vote, but can nevertheless vote and retain full member standing in the General Assembly. Any former Co-Coordinator can request and /or be appointed to this position with the consent of the three incoming Co-Coordinators. The Co-Coordinators will then officially recognize this person(s) with that honor during any one of the General Assembly meeting and at the upcoming Hermanos Macehual Annual Banquet. The Senior Advisor shall permanently hold this title as long as they wish, however, they must attend Executive Council meetings.
Hermanos Macehual will grant the status of Honorary Member to any person, whether in Hermanos currently or not, who has exhibited an outstanding contribution to Hermanos or the Chicano/Latino community. This person(s) will not be subject to organization dues but shall enjoy all benefits and privileges of being in Hermanos Macehual.
All graduated founding fathers of this organization shall be Honorary Members.
In order to preserve the integrity of this Constitution it is necessary to restrict leaders or any members from changing this Constitution without using the guidelines specifically granted through all established laws. From this day forward, no changes may be made to this Constitution, no matter what type they may be, without following established laws for change. In the event anyone in Hermanos does not make changes within the guidelines of the stated constitutional law, then this Constitution shall be voided and the organization name of “Hermanos Macehual” may no longer be stated as the name of Hermanos Macehual.

0007.) New Member Criteria Act
To be implemented on March 15, 1990.
In order for Hermanos Macehual to continue to grow and prosper as an organization it is necessary to implement a system to assure that the organization shall retain members who are committed to the ideals of an academic and social support group as well as to community service. In order for new leaders to emerge to one day lead this organization it is necessary to implement a program to help new members not only get to know the existing members but also to learn about the true purpose of Hermanos. All new members will be required to meet the following criteria to become a full member in Hermanos:
1.) From week one to week six of any quarter a new member may enter Hermanos. Any member who attempts to enter after the sixth week will not have time to complete the tasks of this act and shall be allowed to attend all functions but may not begin his entrance process until the following quarter.

a) In order for a new member to understand why Hermanos exists he must interview two full members in Hermanos, who have been so for at least one year.

Once the interviews have taken place, at the following General Assembly meeting the new member must present an oral report to the General Assembly about his interviews.

d) A new member must pay his fees according to the laws established.
3.) The Recruiter shall keep records on the activities completed by all new members. Failure to complete any of these tasks may result in that member not being admitted at the end of the Quarter but does not bar that member from attempting to become a member at a later date.
4.) If any of these tasks cannot be completed then a member may petition the Co-Coordinators, who can set up an interview time with the new member, discuss the problem, and are granted the power to allow the new member to still be admitted if all three Co-Coordinators feel that the circumstances warrant such action.
5.) Once a member has completed all these criteria will be a full Hermanos Macehual Brother.

0010.) Eliminate Sergeant at Arms Act of 2018
To be implemented April 2nd of 2018.
In order to avoid redundancy and to best reflect the current needs of the the Hermanos Macehual Board, the Sergeant at Arms position will be eliminated and their duties will henceforth be adopted by the Secretary, Recruitment and Retention Officer and Co-coordinators. Said duties include the following:
1.) The Co-coordinators will keep order at all meetings according to established protocol

0012.) Eliminate One Historian Act of 2018
To be implemented April 2nd of 2018.
Due to accessibility in advancing technology, the responsibilities of Historian can be managed by one officer. There shall no longer exist two Co-Historian positions, rather there will only be a single historian. Their duties shall remain the same as previously stated in the constitution.
0013.) Eliminate Jr.Executive Position Act of 2018
To be implemented April 2nd of 2018.
The Jr. Executive board position will no longer exist. As an organization we feel like the Jr. Executive position and its duties do not contribute significantly to the productivity of the organization. In addition, the Jr. Executive position does not allow for the individual who holds the position to gain skills that are necessary to help them grow as an individual. Their duties will henceforth be adopted by the Co-Coordinators and Recruitment and Retention officer accordingly:
1.) The Recruitment and Retention officer will present any concerns of the general assembly to the executive council.
2.) The Co-coordinators shall give general assistance to all executive council members.
0014.) Change of Membership Fee Act of 2019
To be implemented November 20th of 2019
Fee Payments will change from previously being $10 per quarter and $25 for the year to $15 per quarter and $35 for the year. As an organization we believe that as Hermanos Macehual continues to expand in membership and community service, these new fee payments seem appropriate by reflecting on the benefits the member receives as well as maintaining a base for the quarterly community service projects we want to preserve.
