Table a motion

Recommended Posts

The question appears to presume that a motion "needs" to be tabled, yet only the chair knows that it does, or the reason for it.

Could you explain more fully what the situation is when this set of circumstances arises?

Bear in mind that in ordinary societies, the motion to Lay on the Table is seldom in order.

The item was originally thought to be a housekeeping rule to amend but it was recently determined to be a by-laws rule, which would need to be approved by the by-laws committee before presenting to the local members. The officers are aware of this but not the other members - meeting is upcoming.

Well, the easiest way is simply not to move it at the next meeting. If it is moved, the chair can rule that it is not in order, as it would require a bylaws amendment,

Probably the most straightforward way of handling it would be to move to Refer the question to the bylaws committee.

Tabling it would not accomplish anything, and so would not be in order.

Is there a difference between Refer and Commit?
