Writing a Motion

Guest Karin

Recommended Posts

Normally as secretary of our condominium board I would type....."A MOTION has been made and unanimously approved to....So moved by John Smith, seconded by Kim Jones.

How do I construct this when one of the board members opposes and therefore it's not unanimous?

Thank you!

First of all, the format you are currently using is not correct. The minutes should contain the name of the person who made the motion but not the name of the person who seconded the motion.

The minutes should not contain a statement that the motion was unanimously passed unless there was an actual counted vote (raising hands, standing, ballot, or roll call). For example, "Mr. Jones moved that the association purchase a copy of the 11th Edition of Roberts Rules of Order Newly Revised for use by the secretary. The motion was adopted."
