Can a motion be made in, say, three parts, seconded, and then followed by discussion and voting on each part separately?

A motion can be made and placed before the assembly and then divided into three parts, which would be put to a vote separately.

Three separate motions can be moved by a single motion and can be later be split for separate consideration and put to a separate vote.

Could you provide some details?

Part 1: Should part 2 of this motion be carried by a minimum 2/3 majority vs. a simple majority?

Part 2: Yes or no vote to enter into a contractual obligation with an annual opt out option.

Part 3: If part 2 is carried, should annual opt out decision be delegated to a designated board vs. annual business session?

Discuss, then vote each part separately in succession after full motion has been introduced and seconded.

Part one is nonsense; toss it out.

Part three can be made after the adoption of part two, or it can be included in the language of part two. Either way will work. If it is included in the language of part two, it cannot be divided; the process for deciding it in such a case would be to strike it out or leave it.

Motions should not start with the word "should;" they ought to begin with "that," and the following language should represent the decision of the assembly if adopted, such as, "That the board be authorized to exercise the opt-out clause in the ABC contract."
