Options for Preventing Adjournment

The cases where a chair can adjourn the meeting without a motion are found on pp. 240-241 in RONR.  A member can raise a point of order and interrupt any improper attempt to adjourn a meeting if the chair is not following the cited procedure.

Can you tell us more about what really happened?

RONR (11th ed.), p. 223, ll.22-29:  "When the orders of the day are called for or announced, a member can move (depending on the case) 'that the time for considering the pending question be extended' a certain number of minutes, or 'that the rules be suspended and' the desired question be taken up.  These motions require a two-thirds vote in the affirmative for their adoption, since they change the order of business, agenda, or program."
