Seconding a Motion


Recommended Posts

Must the person who seconds a motion be in favor of that motion? We have a motion on the table and seconded by a board member who is not in favor of the motion. Another board member is questioning the validity of his second. In short, must the second come only from one in favor of said motion or can it come from anyone?

The member who seconds need not be in favor of, nor vote affirmatively for, the motion. By seconding, the member simply indicates an interest in bringing it before the assembly for debate and vote, and may in fact hope it gets voted down.
