I need to find out if there is a time limit for a non board member requesting to address the board at the start of an agenda item at a meeting?  We are a non-profit corporation and the person is a member of the corporation but is NOT a member of the Executive Board (officer or director) and this is an Executive Board meeting.

Under the rules in RONR, non-members of the group that is meeting do not have the right to speak or address the body.  However, by a majority vote (or unanimous consent), non-members may be allowed to address the assembly. The assembly may set whatever time limit it desires.   By a two thirds vote, non members may be granted the right to participate in debate, but they cannot vote under any circumstances.
