Best practices

Note: these best practices are merely a collection of procedures deemed good process for a board. They are not binding and have not been voted on or ratified by the board to this date. Online:

Best Practices for Board conduct:

We consider it best practices for our board to follow in spirit the "Robert's Rules of Order".

  • That means that board votes require a motion brought forth by one board member and to be seconded by an other board member.
    • A motion should be specific, unique, and concise. It should include all the relevant details, be unambiguous, and leave as little room for interpretation as possible.
  • After the motion has been seconded the board may discuss the issue and / or vote on it.

A board member makes a motion and the board waits for your motion to be seconded. With few exceptions, all motions need to be seconded by another member of the Board. This is to ensure that the Board does spend its time effectively and not evaluating a proposal which only one member favors.

  • In a formal setting, they will say something along the lines of "I second the motion," or even just "I second."
  • In certain cases, such as when a general consensus is apparent, the presiding officer can choose to skip this step and move on to the next one.
