  1. Well, we just did it wrong this last time. Fortunately, it only came up once. I've advised the president of this so we can fix it next time.
  2. My guess is that we passed it 500 years ago as a standing rule. Time to do some more research.
  3. It is the long-standing tradition in the conventions of an organization of which I am a member to not allow someone who speaking to a main motion a make a motion at the end of a speech during debate (such as a motion to amend or previous question). Our president asked me if I could find the rule on that, and I couldn't. My guess was that when you are recognized you can debate or make a motion but not both. I couldn't find anything that gave a clear answer. So, is our rule something that's in Robert's Rules or is it just a long standing custom of our organization?
