Delete parts of motion in minutes

Recommended Posts

Can a motion (moved and seconded, amended, discussed and passed) as recorded by the Recording Secretary in the written minutes be changed by the President or President-Elect before being sent to members for approval? The President believes that because parts of the motion were not discussed during the meeting, they should not be included in the minutes.

As to this part of your question, nothing in RONR grants anyone the right to make changes to the Secretary's draft before it is submitted for approval. So just don't let them.

Absolutely not.  This qualifies as the all-time worst excuse of all time for this week.  It's quite likely that the parts that were not discussed were the ones with the most nearly unanimous support.  But that's not even the point.  The minutes record the exact wording of the motion, as voted on.

What this means is that all motions adopted by unanimous consent without debate are null. I cannot imagine where a person gets such an idea. This presiding officer desperately needs a copy of RONR 11th edition and do some reading.
