Discussion from the floor when a motion has been seconded

Recommended Posts

Guest Marilyn Allweiss

A motion is made and seconded and discussion by the Board begins.

Does the community have the right to comment at this time or is it only the Board that may discuss the

motion?

Assuming this is a board meeting, only board members have a right to speak in debate. The board may permit non-members to speak in debate by a 2/3 vote, and it would then be at the board's discretion to determine which non-members may speak, for how long, etc.

Only members of the body that is meeting have any rights in a meeting, as far as RONR is concerned. Of course, if procedural rules contained federal, state, or local laws apply to your organization, such rules supersede RONR.
