  1. Hello, I am preparing our Board agenda and a committee has sent motions wording for each policy being brought forward for approval with a mover and a seconder already listed from their committee members. Is it proper to include this in the agenda? Normal practice for us would be to include suggested motion wording with no mover or seconder noted. Thank you
  2. There will be a motion to amend the agenda, submitting a new motion under decision items. This new motion has been previously ruled as out of order, opposes charter and past organizational practice. Is the motion to amend the agenda also out of order? Or is the motion to amend the agenda considered separate from the merits of the new motion?
  3. An Agenda was approved at the beginning of the meeting and the topic brought up at the end for a vote was not on the agenda. Is the vote valid?
  4. In the text found on page 371, lines 25-27 (text that is new to the 11th edition, by the way) we read: "In an agenda, often an hour is assigned only to such subjects as the calls to order, recesses, adjournments..." The difficulty is that a "call to order" isn't an "item of business" (i.e., something the assembly can act on in a meeting) and shouldn't be included in an agenda at all. See the footnote on page 26. A "call to order" takes place before the meeting begins. I suppose this could be remedied by dropping "the calls to order" from the quoted text, or by changing "agend

    Adding agenda items

    We set the agenda at the start of the meeting. We also have "for the good of the order" listed just before adjournment. Can new items (items not mentioned at the beginning of the meeting) be discussed at "for the good of the order" ? Is this a Presidential decision?
  6. Hello, Does a Board need to make a motion to postpone the rest of the agenda until the next meeting. Thank you in advance for your replies.
  7. We have a club election coming up and I have a question about the order of business. Our chairman plans to hold the elections at the beginning of the meeting during the refreshments. I'm concerned about the distractions and uncontrolled chaos around the secretary's table that would make it hard to control ballots and verify eligible voters. We vote by written ballot;nominations were made at the last meeting. Two questions: Is it proper or advisable to hold elections in this environment? Absent a published agenda which our chairman has steadfastly refused to produce, does RONR of
  8. 1. Who write up the agenda, the President or the Secretary ? 2. Where can one find the answer in Robert's Rules of Order ? 3. How is an Officer removed from Office
  9. 2 Motions were properly put by a member to be included in the Agenda for Annual general Meeting and was published 21 days in advance of the meeting as per the Constitution of the Club. Is it in order to remove the motion from the agenda before the meeting but after the 21 day deadline for publishing the agenda in advance? My view is that the agenda cannot be amended but that the Chair of the AGM can advise the attendees that the proposers have asked that the motions be withdrawn Note ,our constitution is silent as to anything to do with changing AGM agenda before or at meeting
  10. We have a council member who votes no on every single agenda. Since he votes no on it, are there any rules as to whether or not he can then comment and vote on said agenda items?
  11. How should an agenda be developed?

    Issues at hand

    Our private organization's constitution contains the following clause entitled "Conducting Business Meetings": Any member may attend any meeting of the boards, committees and societies and speak to issues at hand if not restricted by this Constitution; though, for good order, the chairman has the right to place restrictions and policies on meeting guests. The chairmen of some boards have put guest policies in place where guests are entitled to speak to the business items on the pre-published agenda at the start of the meeting, then proceed with the board meeting in a closed session consis
  13. Is there any guidance or preferred practice for recording the agenda in the minutes? Typically, our board approves minutes that reflect the motion to adopt an agenda. We would be correct that there is no need or requirement (or purpose, really) in specifying what was listed on the agenda (or amended to agenda) in the minutes, yes?
  14. My board has a policy which states that our agenda must be followed, and that in order to change the agenda set by the chairman and executive member, there must be a unanimous vote of the board. This policy has been interpreted to mean that no motions of new business can be made without it being approved on the agenda. I contend that this is in violation of RONR. We follow "the most recent edition of Roberts Rules of Order". I cannot find anything specific in RONR which states that the purpose of New Business is to bring up new motions, whether they are specifically listed on the agenda or

    Agenda Question

    I am on a daycare association board and we meet once a month for a 2 hour training and allow for a 15 minute business meeting. In Roberts Rules of Order 11th Edition-does it state any where that the association or board may require all agenda items to be submitted 12 hours before the meeting and only the items on the agenda will be discussed due to the time allowed for the meeting? On our agenda the last item is always members questions and concerns-we have one member who will not contact the board on any questions or concerns and brings a list of them to each meeting which makes our meeting

    Future Agenda Items

    At our last meeting, our Board requested information on a specific subject. We were not able to obtain any of the information yet, so we did not add it to the next board agenda, as there is nothing to report. One of our Board Member's claims that this is a violation of Robert's Rules of Order. I do not see how he is coming to that conclusion. Any information on where I could look for something like that?
  18. When a special meeting of the Board is called, who sets the agenda and can any other business be conducted other than what is on the agenda?
  19. There is some confusion about this in my organization. Can anyone help to clarify? According to Robert’s Rules of Order, “After an agenda has been adopted by the assembly, no change can be made in it except by a two-thirds vote, a vote of a majority of the entire membership, or unanimous consent.” (p. 373) Does this mean (1) that after the assembly has approved the agenda, a member may not add another item to the agenda except by a two-thirds vote; or (2) that only the general order of business (approval of minutes, committee reports, unfinished business, new business, etc.)
  20. Two questions: 1. If an ADOPTED agenda includes a generic topic under New Business like "Lobby Decorating," can multiple motions germane to "Lobby Decorating" be offered under that agenda item before the body proceeds to the next item of business (say, "Landscaping")? For example, let's say a motion concerning wallpaper is made and disposed of under Lobby Decorating, can a member then rise following that vote and make a motion concerning carpeting? Or, are no further motions in order beyond that first motion because the next item of business (Landscaping) is up next? 2. I serve o

    Agendas

    Do agendas have to be sent out in advance of meetings? If so, how far in advance?
  22. We had our AGM today and at the end of the meeting someone proposed a new motion not on the agenda. It was said that if everyone at the meeting agreed the vote could go ahead. Other AGMs which I have attended would not allow a new item not on the agenda. I could not find the answer in my11th edition. Suggestions please. Bill

    amending the agenda

    School Board unable to agree on procedure. Have FAQ's and 11th edition. Does a committee members move to amend the Agenda (prior to member approval) require a second and majority approval prior to adding to the agenda? If yes, is it debatable? If a second member also makes a move to amend and the response to the above question is yes, are they handled separately?
  24. Good morning all, Our small HOA Board of Directors met for our Regular meeting this month. At that meeting we made and passed a motion to have a Special Meeting (allowed by ByLaws) to finalize the 2016 budget to present to the Members at the General Membership Meeting in January. A request a couple of weeks later was made to discuss another topic (landscape related, non-urgent) at the Special Meeting as well. No notice of the Special Meeting has as yet gone out - it is scheduled to go out in a couple of weeks. It is my understanding the Special Meetings are called to address specific is

    Officers and Agendas

    We are starting a new school year and our student government failed (due to conflicts between certain students and advisors) to hold an election for new officers. Starting this school year, since the term expired over the summer, what should we do for running a meeting? The past-year's President and Secretary are still at the college, but should they still be in their positions? Fact is: a few of us are exasperated but still trying to keep our government going because this is how our clubs get funding and activities happen on campus. In order to hold elections we have to have an electi
