Our organizations leadership was presented a budget reduction proposal. Our leadership group motioned, and seconded to presnt the proposal to the generla membership for a vote. Does the general membership have to motion and second again for the vote to take place.

Also, does the leadership of the group have the right to make a judgement for themselves if a topic is not covered directly in Roberts Rule.

A quick response is appreciated.

Thank you

Who is responsible for approving the Budget? If the Board is responsible, then the meeting would be more for information for the general membership.

However, if the general membership has the authority to approve the Budget, then a motion and a seconder would be required.

I am speaking of a teachers union. Our School board gave the union leadership a proposal that would help them reduce the budget deficit. Our leadership motioned, seconded, and approved to allow the membership to vote on the proposal. My question is... at that memberhsip meeting do we need another motion to proceed with the vote?

What sort of topic do you have in mind here?

I think if you wanted a slow response on this forum, it would be hard to get your wish ;) .
