What to do if the Chairman ignores your Point of OrderSubmitted by Neverquit on Thu, 02/16/2012 - 18:27
If the chairman continues to ignore you, raise a Point of Order. If he or she ignores the Point of Order, make the motion again. If your motion is seconded, and the president still ignores the motion, you have the right to place the Motion before the board, ask for discussion, and take the vote. You have now bypassed the chairman as is your right under Robert's Rules.
You can use this technique anytime the chairman ignores a legitimate motion that has been seconded.
