  1. It seems rather obvious that Guest Doug will need to provide additional facts as to why there is an agenda in the first place, and what, if anything the rules of his organization say about it.
  2. Well, the will of a majority of the entire membership is a powerful force.
  3. Yes, it's interesting to note that it will require an 85% affirmative vote to suspend a rule requiring an 85% affirmative vote to adopt something, but that such a rule can be rescinded or amended by either (a) previous notice (as defined in RONR) and a two-thirds vote or (b) a vote of a majority of the entire membership.
  4. Why do you think that it would? The vote required for adoption of a special rule of order is either (a) previous notice (as defined in RONR) and a two-thirds vote or (b) a vote of a majority of the entire membership (RONR, 12th ed., 2:22).
  5. Well, based upon this more detailed information, all that the Congregation decided was that they would not direct the Deacons to reconsider their decision. This, in my opinion, does not preclude a Deacon from moving, at some future meeting of the Deacons, that the request be granted.
  6. The answer may depend upon exactly what the motion was that the Congregation adopted, but it does seem that the Congregation has instructed the Deacons not to grant the request.
  7. I hope there is more to this then we are seeing, because this is pure nonsense. Are you saying that 2/3rds or more of the votes cast were to reject the motion?
  8. Yeah, well, look where it's gettin' these other guys. 🙂
  9. It's time to give this up, J.J. No one who knows much at all about the rules in RONR is going to say anything other than that the answer to the question you asked is "no." Maybe not even any other so-called "credentialed" parliamentarian. 🙂
  10. It kills the question just the same as if it were voted on and rejected. And as Mr. Martin pointed out, this "is not in order for an election of officers, since the society is required to elect someone."
  11. The same way that a committee report can be postponed. Sure you do. The answer to your question is no, the assembly cannot properly adopt a motion to indefinitely postpone the election. Both of the The second and third original responses said this.
