Thank you for the question.  You can do this if you so wish yes, when forming the association and incorporating it, you will want to write out Articles of Association.  These can outline how votes take place and pass etc.  These are essentially the rules you will for for the committee.  You can get templates for these online, but may be advisable to have solicitor look these over for you.
