  1. HOW LONG CAN A MOTION BE HELD IN COMMITTEE IN VIEW OF RULES AGAINST POSTPONING ACTIONS BEYOND THE NEXT MEETING? WHAT PAGES TO STUDY TO DETERMINE WHAT HAPPENS TO A MOTION WHEN REFERRED TO A COMMITTEE? RATHER THAN POSTPONED TO THE NEXT REGULAR MEETING. HOW LONG, ACCORDING TO ROBERTS, CAN A MOTION BE HELD BY A COMMITTEE WITHOUT REPORTING BACK TO THE BOARD WHO REFERRED IT. PAUL
  2. Given: At the previous meeting, a main motion (MM) was made, debated for a while, then properly postponed to the current meeting, with no time set. At the current meeting, before reaching General Orders (when MM would normally be taken up), is it proper to move to rescind the (previously adopted) subsidiary motion to Postpone? If so, and if the Rescind motion was adopted (2/3 vote required), what would be the status of MM? (I have my own answers - so what else is new? - but let's see where this goes.)
  3. An item on our agenda came up. A motion was made to approve it, seconded and discussion. During the discussion it was determined that we were missing something. So a motion to lay on the table until next meeting (I believe it should have been a motion to postpone, but it was made to table). It was seconded and passed unanimously. So when it comes up next meeting, how should we proceed if we wanted to follow Robert’s? Does someone make a motion to bring from the table, or is it implied since the motion to table specified the next meeting, is it already “there” for discussion on the agenda? (Is is the same if the item was postponed to the next meeting? Does it need a motion to be brought up at the next meeting?) Also, since there was a motion and second to approve it before it was tabled, is that motion still active when we discuss it? Or does someone need to again make a motion to approve the item.
  4. Per bylaws, regular meetings are quarterly in months 3, 6, 9, 12, but bylaws allow cancelling meetings. In March, they cancel the June meeting, and a main motion MM is pending. MM can't be postponed to the next regular meeting (September) because it is more than a quarterly time interval. But is seems to me that in March you could schedule an adjourned meeting for August to continue the current session, and postpone a main motion to the August meeting, and if the August meeting lacks a quorum and adjourns, then at the September meeting the motion would automatically come up as unfinished business (a general order not reached at the August meeting). Postponing in March to the August adjourned meeting (5 months later) because it is in the same session. And the standard order of business applies because they usually have regular meetings quarterly. Is this correct?
  5. In a board meeting (#1) for a student government, a main motion was moved. It was then moved and agreed to 'table' the matter until later in the meeting, which was understood in the sense of a motion to postpone to a certain time. When that time in the meeting arrived, it was again moved and agreed to 'table', or postpone to a certain time, namely the next meeting. The next meeting (#2) was held on schedule, but consideration of the 'tabled' motion was not resumed. I'm aware that the term 'tabling' was misused, and also that a motion to postpone indefinitely would have been better. Given that, though, my questions are: 1. Does this situation need to be rectified, such as by formally considering or withdrawing the main motion? 2. If the main motion is never again considered or withdrawn, should at least a note need to be made somewhere in the minutes? If so, in the minutes of which meeting, #1 or #2?
  6. Hello, Does a Board need to make a motion to postpone the rest of the agenda until the next meeting. Thank you in advance for your replies.
