How To Run A Meeeting

If you would like to know more about how Parliamentarian Procedure from Little Ben, click here for my DVD called How To Run A Meeting.

Proposed by-law amendments have been submitted 60 days prior as required. Submitting party has a change of heart and rather than drastic changes, only wants minor changes. My question: Since submitted 60 days prior, as required, does the minor change have to made through a motion to amend the proposed amendedments? OR can the submitting chapter withdraw the proposed amendment and a new one be proposed in its place and still require only 2/3 vote since there was notice on the subject. Thanks!

Hi Nancy,
Did the person submit an entire revision for the members to consider? Or did the person submit individual bylaws? If the minor changes are already within the first submission, then when the meeting comes the submitting party can decided to present only the changes he wants to consider from the previous notice. However, since the notice has been given this does not stop anyone in the membership from presenting the other bylaws for a vote. If it is a complete revision, then let the members decide if they are willing to consider the smaller changes if they are included in the revision.

Cheerio!

Little Ben
