  1. Hi, I have a question regarding a motion to send back to committee a proposal. In our club, a standing committee reviews proposals to amend the club rules and bylaws. The committee reviews the proposal and reviews it for consistency with the existing rules and bylaws and works with the member(s) submitting the proposal. The proposal is mailed out in advance of the next scheduled meeting and presented to membership. After a discussion the proposal is voted on. Several times the proposal is neither approved or rejected, rather a motion is made from the floor to send the proposal back to the committee. It's been suggested that a motion to send back to committee is out of order. That the proposal should be either approved or rejected. What is the rule on this, and where would I find it in Robert's Rules of Order? Thank you!
  2. Hello, When a member of a Board of Directors proposes a new idea (change in positions, money allocation, etc) does that director have a vote on the proposed idea? Thank you, Lynn
