    Motion to Censure

    Basic questions about making a motion to censure: The chair wishes to make a motion to censure the actions of 3 out of 7 members who acted together as a minority, without the knowledge or approval of the body as a whole. (The assembly I refer to has bylaws that state its members only act as a body) The bylaws have no prescribed means for discipline except that of removal of office, which in this case, is not the intended outcome. Can the chair make ONE motion which censures the actions of all 3? (they acted as a group outside of the whole and would be censured for the same action) When is the
  2. If a member makes a motion to censure the Chair, and the Vice Chair has immediately prior to the motion resigned, who would the member address? Would the appointment of a VP pro tem until the next election be in order first, and then the member with the motion to censure address the VP pro tem?

    We have a situation where we have a board member that has an obvious problem with anger managment. We plan to talk to him in executive session at our next meeting, however... if he doesn't make an adjustment to his behavior-we are prepared to go down the road of censure. Any suggestions would be appreciated. This one is not easy... it's not about a presidng officer not being able to control the meeting... it's about a person who cannot control their anger....Thank you.
  4. I appreciate that RONR contends such an amendment to be in order because it meets criteria of germaneness (p. 137 ll 20-29), however, if a motion to censure is intended to be raised not for violations of decorum, but as a main motion for actions of the individual, wouldn't there be a requirement for prior notice, in order that the member can know to be present to defend their actions, and so that any who have an interest in the consideration of the censure can choose whether or not to attend and where prior notice is a requirement for a motion to be able to be passed, would it not exceed th
  5. Dear Forum, I am interested in the proper procedure for pursuing a motion of censure at the board meeting which *follows* the one in which statements (to the point of allegations) had been made. Under fire was business (actions) taken outside of board meetings. Some statements in the last board meeting fell short of outright allegations, as these were issued under a veil of multitudinous confusion (roughly "I cannothelp but think there must be some conflict of interest in the manner in which these directors have conducted themselves") yet despite other statements going so far as to contend imp

    After the chair removes himself for debate purposes, may the chair vote on a motion to censure the chair?
  7. The body meets both in person and by conference call. Bylaws call for operation per latest RONR, and have a section for removal of a member by formal process, but otherwise do not otherwise mention disciplinary procedures. Near the end of a conference call under any other business, motion is made and seconded to censure one member for his repeated abusive remarks directed to the chair, fellow members, and staff. The chair asks for parliamentary advice regarding the motion, and is informed its in order if pertaining to recent behavior viewed by the entire body and amounts to a formal reprima
  8. A member of an executive committee of a union at a USA college was asked to recuse himself from a case involving his department in which he had voiced strong opinions. He did recuse himself from the union executive committee of the union after being asked to do so, but not from the Department business taken up by the department on which he served. This seemed to be appropriate. Do you agree? However, this Executive Committee member then began to contradict (on the matter taken up by the department) the legal advice of the attorney who is the executive committee's counsel-- as transmitted by
