A client is considering requiring the use of electronic motion forms at their next convention. Members would be required to enter their motion on a provided computer so the PO, secretary, parliamentarian, AV staff, and members are all able to see the language as offered, thereby eliminating eligibility problems. In addition, a delegates assistance table will be available to help members formulate their motions. It is currently agreed that recognition will continue to be determined by the Chair recognizing 'For' and 'Against' microphones. Does anyone have experience with a similar system and any suggested rules regarding: whether all motions must be made by computer, If motions can be submitted from smart phones or laptops by email, how submitted motions are associated with the members who submit them (so the right electronic motion is forwarded to the chair et al)? Any ideas or experience would be appreciated.
