I'm advising an organization that is working on a full revision of its Constitution (i.e. creating a brand new document to replace the old). When the new document is ready to be considered by the members during a business meeting, what would that process look like and what specific motion language would be involved? I'm assuming that moving to accept the whole revision is not wise practice or the correct language.
I'm advising a new colony organization and they have to create bylaws in order to be recognized by the national organization. Do these bylaws initially have to be passed by a simple majority vote, or 2/3rds vote. I know that most bylaws stipulate that any revision or amendment is a 2/3rds vote, but I wasn't sure about the initial passing.
