    Amend Something Previously Adopted

    A marginal notation in the original minutes sounds like a good idea to me, even though the book doesn't say that.

    Continuation of a meeting

    Not. "An adjourned meeting of an ordinary society approves the minutes of the meeting that established the adjourned meeting; its own minutes are approved at the next adjourned or regular meeting, whichever occurs first. " RONR (11th ed.), p. 473

    Continuation of a meeting

    See if §22. FIX THE TIME TO WHICH TO ADJOURN is what you're looking for. RONR (11th ed.), p. 242ff

    Are officers a Board

    "A society has no executive board, nor can its officers act as a board, except as the bylaws may provide; and when so established, the board has only such power as is delegated to it by the bylaws or by vote of the society's assembly referring individual matters to it." RONR (11th ed.), p. 482 RONR does not speak to the second part of your question.
  6. "Prior to or during a convention, members of a delegation may need or wish to meet as a group to decide how they will act with reference to certain matters to come before the convention; a meeting of this kind is usually called a caucus" RONR (11th ed.), p. 605 My understanding of the facts is the delegates will meet and, yes, decide how to proceed. They will be receiving input from others. So what? What did I miss in the original post?

    Statement of Parliamentary Authority

    See this. http://www.robertsrules.com/authority.html
  8. Yes, that seems fine. See RONR (11th ed), pp. 605-607

    Attendees who feel intimidated

    It's probably more dangerous leaving the gun in the car, but, as usual I digress. Off to the 2FP meeting.

    Attendees who feel intimidated

    But you can't ban the member except by the disciplinary process and does your group want to adopt a dress code targeted at one member who isn't doing anything wrong? I agree with Mr. Wynn, time to move on.
  11. This is exactly my understanding of it as well.
