  1. In its unqualified form it only applies to the immediately pending question. If you want it to apply to all pending questions you need to say so when you move for the previous question.

    I was wondering the same thing myself. That would be far less complicated.

    That's uncomplicated? I don't know more than a dozen people (and that may be a stretch) that can properly preside over a substitute.

    Move to request written report?

    An individual member cannot demand anything but the parent assembly can instruct the committee to submit a written report. Please note: "All committee reports should be submitted in writing, except as noted (for particular types of brief reports in a small assembly) on pages 525–27." RONR (11th ed.), p. 511.

    RONR does not require previous notice for something like this. The assembly could have always postponed the matter to the next meeting (assuming that next meeting his held within a quarterly time interval) or sent it to a committee for further review and recommendations. The organization can adopt a rule requiring previous notice on certain types of motions.
  7. "Except in the simplest and smallest local societies, or those holding very frequent regular meetings, it is generally found advisable to provide in the bylaws for a board to be empowered to act for the society when necessary between its regular meetings, and in some cases to have complete control over certain phases of the society's business. Such a board is usually known as the executive board, or—in organizations where there is an executive committee within and subordinate to the board as described below—the board of directors, board of managers, or board of trustees. Any such body is referred to in this book as an executive board, however—regardless of whether there is an executive committee—in cases where the distinction is immaterial.
