    Order of Discussion

    My reading of Roberts Rules seems to indicate that discussion of an issue can take place only after a motion has been made. Other members of my club argue that an agenda item, once introduced by the chairman, can be discussed in general terms before a specific motion is made; discussion is then limited to the specific motion. Which is right? Can discussion occur before a motion is made?
