  1. Members of an executive board I'm on were considering both resolutions and bylaws amendments to forward to our central committee. The resolutions were forwarded to us by a resolutions committee, except for a late resolution submitted by a member. The bylaws amendments were mostly product of our rules committee, although one was mostly unchanged as submitted by a member. When considering these items, our chair and other board members insisted that a vote was not required on each amendment they wished to make to these typed resolutions and bylaws amendments. After some argument from me about this, they then insisted that the motion to pass the resolutions and bylaws amendments was a combined motion to simultaneously amend them. ("I move to pass the resolution with the following amendments: ...") Is this allowed under Robert's Rules? Must not the resolution or bylaws amendment be amended first, each amendment passing or failing, before voting on the motion as amended after all amendments have been disposed of?
