  1. Synopsis: Local government Policy lays out Roberts Rules as the structure for agenda items for public council meetings. An agenda item is listed as a topic for discussion under the category of new business. No action or resolution is expected as it is simply to enable council members to have an open discussion to garner consensus on whether it is an item of interest that might require future action. There is also no policy in place that dictates open discussion to occur at a sub committee level. Question: Once the agenda is approved with the discussion item listed, are council members required to put forth a motion to accept this as an item for discussion, or by way of accepting the agenda has Council already accepted this as an item for discussion?
  2. Can the BOD remove an item from the AGM agenda when that agenda item was initiated by Membership vote, and then tabled at the next AGM. It would seem to me that this is beyond the purview of the BOD, but I cannot find the supporting rule.
  3. At a board meeting, the president said: You understand that this next matter will be an executive session. And the discussion started. No formal motion, no second, no vote. Was this a proper and valid executive session? Are the participants bound ? Thank you.

    New board member

    I’m a new board member. I have not received financial reports or budgets. Can I ask for them at my second board meeting.
  5. Our Annual HOA (Homeowner's Assoc.) meeting was conducted very loosely with no opportunity for discussion before voting. There was a Quorum. Proxies were submitted. Notes were taken by the Sec'y. No one raised any Points of Order. It was my first meeting. Certain items that passed involved raising everyone's Assoc. Dues. Q: Is that meeting's Business and voting now Null and Void? Q: Board of Directors President has called for a SPECIAL MEETING to resolve the mess and someone questions the NEED for this new SPECIAL MEETING and I am left wondering how to respond.

    Speaker and Trainer

    What motions are so important that a member of the body may interrupt the speaker? What about parliamentary items such as points of information, point of procedure, etc?
  7. I can not find the answers to the following questions in the RRO materials. So I need help finding the answers or if you can provide such. 1. If a meeting is recessed for a 10 minute break, by RRO is it necessary to have a roll call to establish what members are still in attendance to declare a quorum when the meeting resumes after the break? A roll call is done when the meeting is called to order originally. 2. If it is announced and agendas made public for a special meeting of a public elected body to start at "X" time on "Y" date followed by a committee of the whole (COW) meeting, according to the agenda to begin 30 minutes after the start time of the special meeting and on the same date, what action needs to be taken about the COW that never occurred because the special meeting ran over 4 hours? The COW meeting was never called to order. Does an anno uncement need to be made publicly that the COW meeting is cancelled? When does this announcement need to be made? Is a motion necessary to move the COW business to a date and time certain or can all of this be left open for a later public announcement? Can the chair just unilaterally make these determinations without approval of the elected body? Thank you for any and all help. Pattsi Petrie
