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.

Ok I made a motion of privilege to follow the rules at a meeting. In the minutes my motion was not listed , so at the meeting I asked for correction. Two different board members stated the correction. I get new minutes and it was stated I brought it up but no action taken. I feel that my right to make a motion is being ignored cause the board does not want to follow any rules. Help!!!!

Dear Tim,
Perhaps the Secretary does not know how to record the minutes or the corrections. I suggest instead of a motion of privilege to follow the rules, that you make a "point of order" when someone breaks the rules. It is a rule that all points of order be recorded in the minutes and the president's response to the point of order. In making a point of order the chair is to either agree with the point and correct the mistake immediately or state that he does not agree with the point and go on with the meeting. In the latter case then you have another motion to get the assembly to decide if a rule is being broken and that is the motion "to appeal from the decision of the chair."

Often you a dealing with people in positions of authority that do not know the rules. May I suggest that you get our book "Robert's Rules of Order Simplified and Applied, 3rd edition" and give it to your presiding officer. It is easy to understand and implement. At our web site www.parli.com we also have DVD's to help presiding officers conduct meetings and members learn the right procedures so that they can participate correctly in meetings.

Cheerio,

Little Ben
