Assembly and the Parliamentarian

Recommended Posts

"The parliamentarian can and perhaps should affirm that motions which violate the bylaws are not in order, but I agree with D.H. that judging whether a particular motion does or does not conflict is beyond the scope of a non-member parliamentarian's duties. "

However, the Parliamentarian would be within the scope of duties to explain, if necessary or helpful, RONR's rules of interpretation.

RONR has no rules of interpretation. Some principles of interpretation are set forth on pages 588-91, but these are not rules, and certainly not rules of parliamentary procedure.

But having said that, I agree that it probably would not be remiss for the parliamentarian, if asked, to inform the assembly concerning these principles where applicable.
