executive vs general board

If motions are made during the executive board meeting, do they need to remade for the general board meeting or just reported?

Two answers.

• If the board is already empowered to do X, then there is no need to involve the general membership in the decision process. It's already a done deal.

• If the board is not empowered to do X, then the board has no choice but to submit its (agreed to) recommendation to the superior body, i.e., the general membership, who may or may not agree with the board's recommendation, and may or may not vote on the recommendation.

The executive committee (what you are calling the executive board) should make a report of its actions at each regular meeting of the executive board (what you are calling the general board), RONR (10th ed.), p. 470, ll. 11-15. This report is for information only, unless the executive committee makes recommendations for action by the executive board.
