  • Issue: Appeal to NC's Ruling the Motion to expedite urgent votes as out of order.
  • Date: 5 July 2000
  • AppealOn 3 July 2000, the following motion was madeby Teri Pettit and seconded by Virginia Cisewski:
    " Whereas 'the great purpose of all rules and forms is to subserve the will of the assembly rather than to restrain it; to facilitate, and not to obstruct, the expression of their deliberative sense' (Robert's Rules of Order), I move that henceforth in all instances where an Advisory Board motion has been made and seconded, and is followed by at least two independent calls for the question: (1) that voting can proceed, with or without discussion, with or without a numbered motion and with or without the approval of the National Coordinator; (2) that said motion shall be automatically approved should it receive the number of aye votes necessary under the Bylaws; and (3) that the only exception shall be when the Bylaws call for a 48-hour membership notice period."
  • On 4 July 2000, the Motion was ruled out of order by the NC with the following comments:
    "The motion above made by Teri and seconded by Virginia is an attempt to make a bylaws change. The AB does not have the authority to make a bylaws change. This also flies in the face of RRO and therefore is declared out of order."
  • on 5 July 2000, an appeal to this decision was made by Virgina Cisewski and seconded by Ginger Hayes stating:
    I appeal this decision on the basis that:
    1. the motion in no way conflicts with law, bylaws or parliamentary procedure as applied in a continuous meeting
    2. the motion is necessary for the Advisory Board to fulfill its obligations to the membership as set forth in said bylaws.
