BOARD MEETING PROCEDURES

It is the desire of the Board that meetings shall be formal enough for orderly procedure but informal enough to be natural, to encourage free discussion and to promote group thinking and action.

The President may preclude discussion which does not apply to the motion last made. He may also minimize or halt discussion of a matter if the Board has previously agreed to confine discussion to a definite period of time, and that period has been used up. Aside from such limitation, the President may limit debate only with the concurrence of two-thirds of the members present.

Conduct of meetings shall be in accordance with Robert's Rules of Order.

The President of the Board may cause removal of any person or persons who willfully disrupts a meeting to the extent that orderly conduct of the meeting is seriously compromised.
