after a motion has been made and seconded what ordered do you
call on members to vote

Dear Bill,

Usually you do not call on members in an order to vote unless it is a roll call vote. In that case, the secretary starts at the beginning of the membership list and works down the list. However, if you mean which order are members called on to debate a motion then the answer is: the maker of the motion has the first right to speak to the motion. Then the chair would call on each member who obtained the floor. If it is a controversial motion then the chair should alternate between those in favor and those opposed.

Cheerio,

Little Ben
