We are a vestry of a church.  We are tasked to discuss the Rectors's financial package. The Rector insists of being present during the discussion. The Vestry members are intimidated by him being present and they will not be able to discuss freely and objectively with him being present.We would like to have Robert's Rules verbiage on how to conduct an executive session.

A motion, adopted by a majority vote or unanimous consent is all that is needed to enter into executive session.  If he's not a member of the vestry he has no right to be there to begin with.  If he IS a member of the vestry he cannot be excluded.
