    Order of Succession

    What is the order of succession according to Robert's Rules and where is it found in Robts Rules? If office of President and President-Elect is vacant, what happens to board?
  2. My organization is about to have elections. How to we determine who speaks first between a challenger and an incumbent?
  3. I am chair of a local planning commission. One member of our commission is requesting that, once we close the public hearing, we allow discussion among the commission members PRIOR to a motion. Our municipal code clearly states that the current version of Roberts Rules of Order are to be followed by our governing body and all other boards and commission. Our legal counsel is also not comfortable allowing discussion prior to a motion - mostly due to the code requirements, I believe. This issue raises its head about once every six months. I have heard of other commissions and groups allowing this but the issue is whether the discussion remains germain to the subject at hand. In any given hearing we can be looking at several action items. Any thoughts?
  4. We will have before us at the next meeting both a motion to rescind and a motion to amend, on the same previous decision. The motion to amend is in the board packet, while the motion to rescind has only been circulated by email. I understand that the motion to amend can pass with a simple majority while the motion to rescind will require a 2/3 majority. But does one motion take precedence over the other?
  5. I am a new school board member seeking a solution to a problem I have encountered. If we have an item on our agenda can we discuss it BEFORE a motion is made. My board currently does not allow discussion of an item of business until after a motion has been made and seconded. This leads to problems when particularly controversial or unclear issues are presented to the board. Is there a way to allow discussion to occur before a proper motion is made?

    Order of meetings

    Is it possible to cover new business before old business? We have one topic of new and our old business will take a lengthy discussion followed by a vote. Is there anyway to revise the order of meeting just for tonight?
