    Call for the Question

    In a small meeting a controversial question is being discussed, monopolized, by three members. Other members wish to discuss the question and the chair tries unsuccessfully to recognize them. Finally one of the loudmouth three, attempting to cut off debate, calls for the question and is seconded. The chair ignored the seconded motion (call) and allowed other members to speak. Then a vote was taken on the original question. Was the chair correct to ignore the seconded call for the question? Thanks
  2. We are a small condominium association with a very small board, 3 board members. The Bylaws provide that special meetings of the members may be called by the President, Vice-President or a majority of the board, and must be called by the association upon receipt of written request by 20% of the voting interests. The Bylaws provide for no time limitation upon which the board must call the meeting. The Bylaws also specifically reference RONR as the parliamentary procedures to be followed. Florida Statutes 718.112(2)©1 states in part: "If 20 percent of the voting interests petition the board to address an item of business, the board, within 60 days after receipt of the petition, shall place the item on the agenda at its next regular board meeting or at a special meeting called for that purpose." Q: Is there a way that 20% of the members can actually call the meeting, create the agenda, meet the notice requirements, etc. without being forced to go through the board? Q: If such a members meeting is called by the members and all members receive notice, is the meeting official assuming a quorum is met, and can official business be taken at said meeting. In the alternative, Florida Statutes 718.112(2)(j) states: Recall of board members.—Subject to s. 718.301, any member of the board of administration may be recalled and removed from office with or without cause by the vote or agreement in writing by a majority of all the voting interests. A special meeting of the unit owners to recall a member or members of the board of administration may be called by 10 percent of the voting interests giving notice of the meeting as required for a meeting of unit owners, and the notice shall state the purpose of the meeting. Electronic transmission may not be used as a method of giving notice of a meeting called in whole or in part for this purpose. Q: If such a members meeting is called by 10% of the voting interest, can other business be conducted at said meeting in addition to the recall of board members, such as amending the association documents? Thanks in advance for any input.
