Directors shall be employees of Mobile Mini Inc. Directors may have such other qualifications as the Board may prescribe by amendment to these Bylaws.
At a meeting of the Board, the Directors shall classify themselves into three groups to serve staggered terms of office as follows: approximately one-third of the Directors shall serve for a term ending two years from the date of the next annual meeting of the Board ("Class 3"); approximately one-third of the Directors shall serve for a term ending one year after the such annual meeting of the Board ("Class 2"); and approximately one-third of the Directors shall serve for a term ending as of the date of the such annual meeting of the Board ("Class 1").
Approximately one-third of the number of Directors fixed by or in the manner provided by these Bylaws shall be elected each year at the annual meeting of the Board by the affirmative vote of a majority of the Directors then in office (including those Directors whose terms expire on the date of the meeting) to replace that group of Directors whose terms expire each year.
Each group of Directors shall be elected for terms expiring on the date of the annual meeting of the Board three years subsequent to their election and until their successors are elected and qualified.
The annual meeting of the Board shall be held on or after the 1st day of January and in no case later than the last day of February on a date chosen by the Chair or the Board for the purposes of electing Directors and officers and transacting such business as may properly come before the meeting. If the annual meeting is not held on the date designated therefore, the Board shall cause the meeting to be held as soon thereafter as may be convenient.
By resolution, the Board may specify the date, time and place for holding regular meetings without other notice than such resolution.
Special meetings of the Board or any committee designated and appointed by the Board may be called by or at the written request of the Chair or any two Directors, or, in the case of a committee meeting, by the chair of the committee. The person or persons authorized to call special meetings may fix any place either within or without the State of Arizona as the place for holding any special Board or committee meeting called by them.
Members of the Board or any committee designated by the Board may participate in a meeting of such Board or committee by means of a conference telephone or similar communications equipment by means of which all persons participating in the meeting can hear each other at the same time. Participation by such means shall constitute presence in person at a meeting.
All meetings shall be held at the principal office of the corporation or at such other place within or without the State of Arizona designated by the Board, by any persons entitled to call a meeting or by a waiver of notice signed by all Directors.
The Board of Directors are all current employees in good standing with Mobile Mini, Inc. of Arizona and represent a cross-section of functions from HR Benefits, Vice Presidents, store sales personnel and more. Each has voluntarily donated their time to the launch and oversight of the organization and the unique combination of skills and positions helps ensure that the needs of employees at all levels are appropriately considered.
The organization will serve the needs of all 1,300 employees of Mobile Mini, Inc , (full-time, part-time, temporary employees, and those who haven’t yet passed probation.)
The meetings shall utilize Robert’s Rules of Order to maintain order and precision. The rules will be loosely interpreted and assumed to be suspended unless formally requested for a meeting or a period in a meeting. Open discussion is encouraged and there is no hierarchy beyond maintaining basic order in the meeting.
All members of the board of directors have equal voting rights. No vote shall count more than another and no officer shall hold the power to veto or further impact a proposal beyond their one vote. A two-thirds majority is required to pass any measure. The president shall only be allowed to vote in order to break a tie, but otherwise has no voting rights.
All monies collected by the group shall be given either charitably or through fundraising efforts. The funds collected by the group shall only be used for the purpose of giving and to cover costs of operation. Members of the board are not considered a cost of operation. Officers are not considered a cost of operation. The balance sheet for the group shall be visible on the website and information must be accurate within 90 days.
All charitable giving by the group shall be given to those in need. “In need” could mean, but is not limited to, coworkers and their immediate families with medical emergencies, coworkers and their immediate families with unique and dire circumstances, etc. This shall not include discretionary things like funeral expenses. Voting for giving shall be private and secret. Because limited funds will be available, not all requests will be met.
The president shall have no special powers, only extra responsibilities. The purpose of a “President” of the board of directors is to serve as the speaker during meetings as well as to convey information to the masses. Communication includes all website maintenance (or at least delegating that work) and marketing events and gifts. The president shall be a signer on the bank account(s) as well as have access to funds so long as all transactions remain transparent. The president can be removed as a member of the board, at any time with a two-thirds majority vote of no confidence. The president is not allowed to vote except in the event of breaking a tie.
The treasurer shall have no special powers, only extra responsibilities. The purpose of a “Treasurer” of the board of directors is to serve as the chief financial officer. The treasurer is required to give an updated statement of accounting at every meeting and ensure that all legal requirements are met. The treasurer shall have full access to the bank account(s) as well as access to funds so long as all transactions remain transparent. The treasurer can be removed from office without being removed as a member of the board at any time with a two-thirds majority vote of no confidence. The Treasurer has full voting rights.
The secretary shall have no special powers, only extra responsibilities. The purpose of the secretary is to ensure meeting minutes are taken, all legal documentation and filings are current (or at least delegate that responsibility) and serve as the speaker in the absence of the president at meetings. The secretary has no term limitations, and can be removed from office but not as a board member, with a two-thirds majority vote of no confidence.
Upon the dissolution or winding up of the corporation, its assets remaining after payment of, or provision for payment, of all debts and liabilities of the corporation shall be distributed to a nonprofit fund, foundation, or corporation organized and operated exclusively for one or more exempt purposes and which has established its tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or corresponding section of any future federal tax code.
