Is there such a thing as 'roundtable?' My club as adopted Robert's for board meetings. However, at the conclusion of the Agenda, the older cadre demands to address the board on any topic of their choice and insist, including FYI items and motion items. The roundtable discussions are then supposed to be included in the minutes.

RONR doesn't use the term "roundtable" but it sounds like you are talking about Good of the Order, General Good and Welfare, or Open Forum which RONR discusses on pp. 350-351. However, the minutes reflect what was done at the meeting and not what was said so the discussion should not be included in the minutes.

If these individuals are board members, they should make their motions at the appropriate times during the meeting's order of business. If they are not members of the board, they have no right to make motions or speak, though the board may allow them to be heard, at its discretion.
