I had a board member make a motion to reprimand another board member's conduct and to place sanctions against the board member. The motion was given in writing because it was quite expansive and all the board members were given copies to have during the making of the motion. In the end, the motion was to accept the written motion and submit it into our minutes and we voted to approve the motion.

The reprimanded board member is challenging whether a motion can be made in writing and if this motion can be submitted as a document instead of verbally. Can anyone tell me a definitive answer?

However, the chair should read the motion aloud to place it before the meeting and again before the vote, although these rules can be suspended if there is no objection. And if you're voting to accept (the proper term is "adopt") a written motion, it should be worded as a resolution.
