Seating arrangements

Recommended Posts

Guest Puzzling

Was reading 

and was wondering what kind of vote  (majority or 2/3) is needed for:

 I recommend that the board members who are members of the general assembly sit with the other members of the general membership. If the hall is not arranged this way when the meeting begins, the assembly can order the board members to vacate their places and take their seats with the other members.

(From almost the last post)

Rules concerning the seating arrangements in the meeting room or area are not rules of parliamentary procedure, per se, since they do not directly pertain to the transaction of business during a meeting.  They are to be classified as ordinary standing rules, which require a majority vote for adoption.  See RONR (12th ed.) 2:23; t6-t7, motion 8.
