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 If the main motion is never again considered or withdrawn, should at least a note need to be made somewhere in the minutes?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?
