  1. Thanks for the responses. OK, I'll just give the section and paragraph numbers and presume that anyone can find the quoted line or lines therein.
  2. I just received my copy of the new 12th edition of RONR. I see that this version is using section and paragraph numbers, rather than pages and lines. The list of abbreviations does not include "ll." (lines x to y). So: what if we want to quote just a line or two from a particular section and paragraph? Can we still use "ll." within a section and paragraph, or is that now considered unnecessary or wrong?
  3. Do your bylaws allow electronic meetings? If so, simply use Zoom or some other software, and then you should be OK for getting the Nominating Committee to work and then the Assembly.
  4. But an amendment of the third degree is not allowed. RONR (11th ed.), p. 135, ll. 22=23.
  5. I think you're right. An Executive Committee may go into Executive Session upon taking a vote to do so, but it's not so automatically (unless stated directly in the Bylaws). Also they cannot disband a Standing Committee--this requires an amendment to the Bylaws.
  6. Conducting business via e-mail does not constitute a "deliberative assembly." RONR (11th ed.), p. 98, ll. 14-17. Of course, your Bylaws overrule RONR, but it's very difficult to conduct a debate via e-mail.
  7. The most simple answer is to become a member and stay logged in!
