  1. Is it necessary when making a motion that can interrupt business such as a question of privilege or a point of information to say Mr. President, I rise to... or is it acceptable to simply say I rise to... without the prefix Mr. President?
  2. Speech before motion

    Hi, I'm relatively new to Roberts Rules but suspect that they were not followed yesterday, in a meeting at my college. The faculty was to vote on a controversial resolution; more than 130 people were present. Before the motion for the resolution was made, the provost took the microphone and gave a speech, arguing against the resolution. Was he out of order? Would it have been proper to interrupt him? If so, how? Thanks. Best, Elisabeth
