HOW DO YOU RESCIND A MOTION THAT PASSED WHEN YOU DISCOVER IT CONFLICTS WITH THE BYLAWS?

Hi Dorothy,

Oh my goodness, I just got this e-mail. I hope that I am not too late to give you an answer! If a motion conflicts with your bylaws, it is null and void. That is a basic principle in parliamentary law. The president needs to let everyone that is conflicts with the bylaws and is null and void. No motion is necessary. If they do not accept this answer, then there is a motion to rescind. If you give previous notice prior to the meeting you make it, then it only takes a majority vote to adopt. If no previous notice is given, then a two-thirds. The best way is for the president just to declare it null and void.

Cheerio!

Little Ben
