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
If an issue has been tabled to the subsequent meeting and then once that meeting arrives, the board no longer desires to address the topic, does the issue die or does their need to be action taken (such as move to table indefinitely or vote to leave as is)?
