  1. There is no need at all to address this in the bylaws. See https://robertsrules.com/faq.html#1
  2. It's the Secretary's duty to prepare the draft and it should done so according to the rules in Section 48 in RONR. But for fun, have your chair read p. 472ff for RONR's form of the minutes. They don't get much briefer than that.
  3. While he's clearly wrong that they are "no" votes, as FAQ#6 that Mr. Martin referred you to notes, it is possible that the abstentions have the same effect as a no vote. If a majority of the entire 3 member board is required to adopt a motion, 1 yes vote isn't going to cut it and the motion would fail. So he may just be using imprecise language.
  4. I'm stubbornly waiting for the Deluxe Edition.
  5. I was sure, So adopting an agenda which does not include new business doesn't prevent members from bringing up new business after all of the items have been gone through, but it's going to take something more to permit it, correct? If so, yes, I wasn't clear on that.
  6. If the rules in RONR solely control this matter and previous notice is not required, yes.
  7. See Temporary Occupants of the Chair, beginning on p. 452 of RONR for the full set rules which Mr. Katz has summarized.
  8. Oops, I misread this. Stay tuned for a good response.
  9. Not unless the board has granted permission for them to do so. See RONR (11th ed.), p. 487
  10. I think it is a motion to amend something previously adopted if it's taken up on the 19th, sure. But what would be in order on the 20th if the meeting was held then and the members were in favor of granting additional time to those who had not paid?
  11. I don't think it's too late but even if you think it is, why couldn't they adopt a new motion to grant an extension?
  12. Sadly, Mr. Mountcastle won't be responding to a 9+ year thread.
  13. How about simply stating that no vote was taken on the motion, since that's what happened?
  14. I'm not sure you asked a question, but when it comes to a meeting of the membership, the board has no authority under the rules in RONR to impose any of the things you mentioned. Members are always entitled to make motions as new business unless the bylaws require previous notice.
