  1. Thanks to all on this thread ; you covered a number of motions, . This hypothetical and all of your input will resonate as a solid example of how to use RONR concepts.
  2. Ah the rub.! As with any sufficiently compelling mystery novel, I have a plot twist, Mr.. A's original motion #1 was that both the capital expense portion of the project and the ongoing and future maintenance expense be split 75%/25%. Motion seconded . Defeated 4-2. Mr. A's 2nd motion was that the capital expense be split 60%/40% and the ongoing and future maintenance expense be split 75%/25% as in the original motion. Motion seconded and approved 4-2. Does this change anyone's thoughts? Would it have been more appropriate to have a motion to split the question?
  3. This is fascinating to hear such eloquent and lucid opinions... It seems obvious to me now that timely action is the best solution as it keeps the deliberative process on a much less nebulous path. So how can we fix our process so motions are not allowed at the time of the committee reports and without notice? By-law change? Standing rule, if there is such a thing? This is what started the whole mess? Thanks!

  5. What constitutes "notice"? Does Mr B's motion in #3 above at the beginning of the meeting constitute "notice" and lower the threshold of adoption
  6. Thanks Alexis. Can you clarify if Mr. A's 2nd motion needs to be amended before it is voted on. Under what circumstances does Mr. A's 2nd motion require a motion to reconsider? Should the 2nd motion wait until the rest of the agenda is finished and be brought up as new business?
  7. Our Residential Condo Association and a Commercial Association occupy the same building; commercial units on the bottom floors and the residential units are on the upper floors. The associations split shared expenses and project costs The residential Association has regularly scheduled monthly meetings and an Executive Board consisting of 7 members. At a regular monthly meeting of the our Residential Condo Association’s Executive Board with six directors attending, “Mr. A” moved to split costs of a project between the Residential Association and the Commercial Pl
