I think you're largely on your own here, since RONR doesn't address the issue of two separate bodies having to approve the same motion. For what it's worth, in most ordinary organizations, the general membership is considered the superior body to the board, and can rescind or amend decisions made by the board in all cases in which the bylaws do not give the board exclusive authority. Whether that applies to your specific situation, however, is something your organization is going to have to decide.

Q. You have three bodies involved in the process?

Because of this complexity, no answer is possible from Robert's Rules of Order, since your method of amendment is so unusual, so unique.

Someone will have to read your bylaws and interpret the text.

I suspect guest Philip is using the terms executive committee and executive board interchangeably, but, regardless, it is still a question of interpreting his organization's bylaws
