Do you have to have items that are to be voted listed on the agenda?

I was told in my board meeting by our Parliamentary that we HAVE to include on our agenda anything that has to be voted on. Meaning, it has to be a separate line item under the committee name showing that we will be voting on it.

Can anyone provide the page in RONR 11th ed or RONRIB that addresses this?

Why don't you ask your Parliamentary to provide this? (I'm guessing s/he won't be able to, but it might be fun to watch)

In the meantime, take a look at FAQ #14.

David is correct - nothing in RONR requires that all issues to be voted on must be on the Agenda - that's partly what "New Business" is for. It helps if the President or Secretary has a list of issues they know need to be dealt with, but that does not necessarily mean that all those items need to be listed on the Agenda. It helps in a way, but it certainly is not required.

Mind you, if you are talking about a special meeting, rather than a regular meeting, that is an entirely different matter.

No. And more to the point, neither can he.
