No. Per RONR officer reports give recommendations, and the actual motion to implement any such recommendation should come from the floor.

In contrast, a motion from a committee of two or more is to be moved by the reporting member.

Typically, reports, whether from an officer or a committee, are not voted on to be accepted at all. Only specific recommendations.

The typical treasurer's report is not voted on to be accepted at all, but only the audit report of the annual treasurer's report.

Regarding the treasurer's report, there may be other concerns stemming from the Sarbanes-Oxley Act that may need to be considered.

Is it correct for the presenter of any report,

especially the treasurer presenting his financial report,

to move that his report be accepted?

Which question are you really asking:

• A question whether the person who makes the motion shall be the presenter, as opposed to another member?

• A question whether the whole report is to accepted, as opposed to the specific recommendations?

• A question whether a treasurer's report itself can be/should be adopted?

It is correct:

• That, for a committee, the presenter be the person who makes a motion arising out of the committee report. [see page 489.]

It is not correct:

• That an officer make a motion that something arising out of his report be adopted. [see page 344.]

• That a motion to adopt an entire report be made by the presenter. [see page 490.]

• That a treasurer's report (his ordinary monthly report) be adopted. [see page 459.]
