Executive session

Recommended Posts

If a subject that was discussed in executive session comes up in the regular meeting by someone who was not at the meeting who may or may not be aware of the executive session discussion, can it be discussed?

Sure, as long as no one who was in the meeting held in executive session reveals what was said during it.  That could prove tricky.  As an aside, in a regular assembly, discussion isn't permitted without a pending motion.

Wouldn't stopping it also raise the same problem?  "Hey, you can't talk about that, we said during the ES that..."

I didn't suggest stopping it, but I did note the situation was tricky.  The talkative member could face a disciplinary issue later.

I know, I was just chatting.

Didn't I just say something about a talkative member and disciplinary action? :)

The assembly could go into executive session to inform the absent member what happened, then leave to resume consideration of the matter at hand. Or the member could be informed privately, since the secrecy of an executive session prohibits non-members from being told what happened, not absent members.
