A  BYLAW CHANGE - AMENDMENT WAS PRESENTED FOR A FIRST READING.

For the second reading, the author introduced some changes in the text.

How do we handle it?

Acceptable?

Or does it becomes a (new) first reading?

Or?

Thanks.

 

It's up to your society to interpret its own bylaws.  In a group I chaired, two readings were required, but if amendments were agreed to, it did not require additional readings.  Those with interest in the outcome were deemed to have received sufficient notice.

As far as RONR is concerned, once a question is placed before the assembly, the original mover loses control over it. The only way to add any of language would be through the normal amendment process available to any member, and subject to majority approval.
