How Many Is Needed for a Quorum?

There is no standard number or percentage of voting members required for a quorum. Relative to the size of membership, organizations decide on an appropriate quorum number for the most efficient validation of proceedings.

If the number required for a quorum has been set too low, there is a risk that the group's decisions can be made by only a few people, and such a limited viewpoint may not be in the best interests of the organization. If the number required for a quorum has been set too high, it can be difficult to gather the required number of members to validate any decisions or proceedings.
