Point of Order

Used when a member believes the rules of the assembly are being violated or proper decorum of debate is not being followed and the chair does not call the person to order.

Nancy Sylvester, CPP-T, PRP: "Point of Order is a motion that helps us remember that leadership of the meeting is not solely the responsibility of the chair."

Point of Order

Standard Descriptive Characteristics

  • Can interrupt.
  • Does not require a second.
  • Is not debatable.
  • Is not amendable.
  • Normally ruled on by the chair.

No vote unless:

      • the chair is in doubt and lets the assembly decide, after which there is no appeal from the decision of the assembly; or
      • the chairsruling is appealed then follows the process unique to appealing the decision of the chair.

6. Cannot be reconsidered.

1 can interrupt
1. Can interrupt
  • Every member has the right to insist on the enforcement of the rules.
  • It is even in order when another member has the floor and is speaking or reading a report.
  • The chair must recognize this right and should not take it as a personal attack.
  • A point of order must be raised promptly when the breach of the rule occurs. In fact, if debate on a motion has begun, no matter if the motion is out of order or not, it is too late to raise a point of order.
2 does not require a second
2. Does not require a second

A Pointof Order has such importance that it does not require a second.

The chair must respect the right of the member to raise a point of order as the timeliness of the point of order is important. (As indicated on the previous slide)

3 not debatable
3. Not debatable

While not debatable, the chair may allow a member to briefly explain his point and knowledgeable or interested members can be heard by way of explanation.It is about getting it right not who has power.

4. Not amendable

There is no variable to amend.

5. Ruling
  • It is important that the chair explain the ruling.
  • If the chair simply rulesthe Point of Order not well taken, and “gavels through” the PO without explanation, this infringes on a right of the member.
  • A chair who is not impartial will sometimes “gavel through” without explanation.
  • Watch for it!
6 cannot be reconsidered
6. Cannot be Reconsidered
  • Once the chair rules, the member, if he/she does not accept the ruling, can Appeal the Decision of the Chair.
  • Once the decision is made whether by the chair or the assembly or perhaps after an appeal, the decision stands...unless...
      • The breach is of a continuing nature...i.e.conflicting with bylaws; breaking of federal, local, or legislative laws; protecting rights of absentees or of an individual member; or voting infraction. In such cases it is never too late to raise a point of order as any action taken is null and void

APPEAL THE DECISION OF THE CHAIR...
