  1. I attended our Annual General Meeting for our Condo Association. I waited patiently while other owners were recognized by the President to rise and take the podium. When the President recognized me, I stood, took the podium and started to speak. After about a minute and while I was speaking, the President took a motion from the floor to adjourn the meeting. I promptly told the President numerous times that I had not yielded the floor. He ignored me and took a vote. The meeting was adjourned and I was left standing at the podium. Can a meeting be adjourned while a member is speaking and the member has not yielded the floor to the chair? I do have a copy of Robert's Rules of Order 11th edition, but it doesn't answer my question since in this case I already had the floor. Page 240 (5) If the chair learns, immediately after declaring the assembly adjourned, that a member seeking the floor for one of these purposes had risen and addressed the chair before the adjournment was declared, then, since the adjournment was improper and this breach was promptly noted, the chair must call the meeting back to order---but only long enough or the purpose for which the member legitimately sought the floor. Many thanks. Nancy
