  1. As Charter Organization for a Boy Scout Troop our sports club voted 2 years ago to issue 2 key cards to the senior troop leaders so they could access our clubhouse on meeting nights. Recently, with no reference to the previously approved motion, a motion was approved to pull the key cards since the troop leaders since they are not also club members and that a club member must now be present at every meeting. Because the recent motion did not specifically refer to the orginal motion was the motion and subsequent vote a breach and point of order? As I understand it, the original motion is still in effect as if the latest motion and vote never took place. Bob Kaufman bobkaufman@msn.com
  2. Point of order is raised in contentious debate over a motion - does the point of order get included in the minutes?

    Point of Order

    I need help! What if someone keeps saying "Point of Order" about things that are not parliamentary in nature? --- ex: she thinks something should have been included in a handout, etc. As presiding officer do I still need to rule on this? if I say the point is not well taken, and explain she needs to state which parilamentary rule someone has broken), she says "oh, it's a rule all right -- it's in there someplace", and then wants to appeal the decision. Do I really need to take an appeal vote on something that is obviously not even a point of order (and waste everyone's time)? This member is very loud, agressive and abrasive, and members are rolling their eyes. She says she knows her rights and her Robert's Rules (ah....a little knowledge....) Many of our members are older and meek, and she has steam-rolled over them for years. Now I've joined, and she resents my leadership. Many of our older members do not even understand "point of order" ....I don't think they could even follow what is involved in an "appeal" (a majority vote in the "negative" is beyond some of their comprehension). So please --- how do I handle this? give me some wording to use with her. Or if I am in the wrong, plese explain why.
  4. I have two questions: Does the parliamentaria of a society have the authority to respond to a point of order without being recognized by the Chair? Is there any recourse when in response to a point of order, the parliamentarian responds with inaccurate and incorrect information? Thank you
  5. Our town occasionally has some controversial subjects. When this shows up at the meetings, someone in the audience will typically shout out “point of order”. Who is able to make a point of order? Is it simply the members of the board, or can audience members do so as well? Also, once a point of order has been ruled upon, can it be made again immediately?
  6. I cannot seem to find an answer to this question - A general meeting was held, slate was unopposed and voted by hand. The slate was passed by a majority of those present. A question was raised after the meeting as to whether a quorum was present and if not, was the vote then illegal? A board meeting is looming, no current board member is going to raise the question. How should this be addressed by the membership? Members are allowed to attend the board meetings, however they have no vote unless they are on the board. Should there be a point of order raised, or is there some other method to address this. Several members not on the board want the election set aside for vote at the next meeting where a quorum would be present.
