Select a Category above or submit a question and I’ll post a response.

Alan is from a community association in the USA and has asked this question:

Are members allowed to raise point of order, or is that restricted to Directors of the Board of Directors?

The answer depends on the type of meeting. If it is a “general” meeting, that is an Annual General Meeting, a Special General Meeting or an Extraordinary General Meeting, then anyone who is a member of the organization can raise a point of order.

If the meeting is of the Board of Directors, but where members who are not directors are permitted to be present as observers for instance, then no, only the directors can raise a point of order.
