At our Navy veteran Conventions, during the Roll Call votes, the secretary calls out each individual Chapter and Office position rather than the actual names of the Delegates! It's my understanding that only "members" vote and not the offices with which they may hold?

Is this an acceptable or typical practice at Conventions or a violation of RONR? Nothing in the Bylaws establishes anything different.

During a rollcall vote, unless your own customized rules provide to the contrary, the secretary should read the roll of the list of credentialed delegates who are registered as being in attendance at the convention.

In a roll call vote under RONR, it is correct that the secretary calls out members by name, in alphabetical order. For your convention, however, it is likely that the convention rules prescribe how your convention delegates ( conventions don't actually have 'members' per se) are defined and referred to. Check those rules to see whether the delegates are actually described in terms of their chapter and office positions.
