Tiny Typo

I believe the first word in RONR (11th ed.), p. 320, l. 29  should be read as "at", instead of "as".

Thanks. You might want to review the following post as well, which has a collection of various typos in RONR 11:

http://robertsrules.forumflash.com/topic/27129-typos-in-the-11th-edition/

And that post includes a link to an earlier comment http://robertsrules.forumflash.com/topic/27716-reconsider-where-previous-question-carried/?tab=comments#comment-159238 with the same typo that you found. But please keep reading -- you may yet find a new typo!

And don't forget "in an unusual circumstance" p. 575 l. 23. In the past there was considerable discussion about what constituted an "emergency" and eventually RONR got rid of it. If this thing stays, eventually someone is going to object to the changing of a meeting date based on what is and what is not an "unusual circumstance." And the discussion will take off from there.

I don't know.  The tax code gets away with "ordinary and necessary."  (Which, of course, means helpful.  Meanwhile, "convenience of the employer" means business necessity.)

I don’t see a problem. It would seem to me that any reason which necessitates changing the date of a particular regular meeting will, by definition, be an unusual circumstance. If it was a usual circumstance, then it would be necessary to change the dates of regular meetings generally, rather than a particular meeting.
