Board Meeting Motion

Guest Bill Gwodz

Recommended Posts

Per the rules in RONR, the president, if he is a member of the society, has the same rights as all other members, including the right to make motions, but he should not exercise that right in order to maintain the appearance of impartiality. He should not make motions, but he cannot be prevented from making motions.

As to the procedure in a board, RONR provides in the “small board rules“ that in boards of no more than about a dozen members, the presiding officer may participate just like all the other members, including the right to make motions and to participate in debate. See section 49:21 in the 12th edition.
