10 minute talking rule

Does the 10 minute talking rule referenced in RONR on p.43 ll.11-14 apply to guests at a Board meeting. Also, in contrast to a member who may speak twice, can a guest only speak once?


Guests can't speak at all, except to the extent authorized by the board. Majority consent is needed to allow a guest to speak when no motion is pending.   During debate on a pending motion, a 2/3 vote is required, to suspend the rule that ordinarily prevents non-members from speaking in debate.


But you may have special rules in place that supersede RONR.
