Our club wants to change our bylaws From: SEC. 1. Parliamentary procedure. The rules of parliamentary procedure set forth in the latest edition of Robert’s Rules of Order shall be used as a guide. To: SEC. 1. Parliamentary procedure. The rules of parliamentary procedure set forth in the latest edition of Robert’s Rules of Order shall be used as a guide where existing (club name) tradition and procedures are not already in practice. There is really only one person who claims to know what we have always done and in most cases that person has been proven wrong. I believe that since there is no physical documentation for past practices and no procedures were ever written down, RONR should be the only deciding arbiter. Is there any RONR or other argument against allowing this change? I am familiar with Page 19 of the 11th Edition. What I want to do is keep that as valid for my club and not allow them to negate Page 19 by adding this to the bylaws.
gpeastwoo posted a topic in General DiscussionCan anyone tell me what is the primary difference between RONR and the Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure used by the American Institute of Parliamentarians? Much appreciated
I have a question with regards to a difference between the 10th and 11th Edtions of RONR. Pages 92-93 of the 10th Edtion, with regards to Executive Session, state: "In most organizations, except those operating under the lodge system, by practicse or sometimes, by rule, membership meetings are open to the public, but board or committee meetings are customarily held in executive session." The emphasis is mine, and my question is this: Does anyone know the rationale why the part about Boards customarily holding meetings in Executive Session was removed in the 11th Edition? Of course if the custom to do so was started unther the 10th Edition, Board meetings would still normally be held in Executve Session by custom as the 11th Edition allows for this (page 95 ll 26-27.)
My organization will be making some bylaw amendments due to the clarification around electronic meetings which was provided in the 11th edition of RONR. Question: With each new edition of RONR that is published, is there a grace period/deadline date that is given to organizations to afford them time to bring their governing documents into compliance with the new RONR guidelines? For example, 30 days after the new edition of RONR is published? 90 days? As soon as practicable?
