Identical motions

Recommended Posts

Does RONR address a situation where we have two members who made identical

motions.

Apparently, I had sent a member a copy of my motion to a freind

who presented the motion to the Orlando session of his shift meeting

and it was seconded.

I then made the same motion at the Oakland session of my shift meeting

and it was seconded. Apparently the Chair did not notice it was the same

motion.

Now both motions appear on the agenda to be voted on at the next meeting.

This seems dilatory, but I'm looking for a page reference in RONR that

specifically deals with "identical motions", if nothing there, perhaps

a page reference to dilatory motions would help? Any suggestions on how

I could ask the Chair/Rec. Sec to remove this identical motion?

"Motions are also improper when they present practically the same question as a motion previously decided at the same session." (p. 332 l. 25-27)

Any suggestions on how I could ask the Chair/Rec. Sec to remove this identical motion?

Make a motion to amend the agenda when it is up for adoption.

I noted that you said "shift meetings." It is very possible that this is two different session of the same organization. Depending on your bylaws, this might be in order.
