Debate Rules

Guest GuestAL82

Recommended Posts

If an organization does not have debate rules in it's By-Laws or Constitution, but wants to shorten the time and limit the amount of speakers, can this be done by the executive board by a first motion, second motion and vote or does the motion have to go to the membership?

It sounds to me like guest AL82 wants to enact something like a special rule of order to apply to all meetings, not just to the debate on one particular motion. If so, that would mean the adoption of a special rule of order which requires either previous notice and a two thirds vote or the vote of a majority of the entire membership. RONR, p 17. Also pages 121-124.
