BEDD Rules of Order
RULES OF ORDER
The Committee believes it can meet as a body and proceed best with its deliberations in an atmosphere of free exchange of information and opinion unhampered by formal rules of order which are usually designed for the management of large groups or organizations. Therefore, while in general the Committee will observe Robert’s Rules of Order, Revised for the conduct of business, it will not consider itself bound by these formal rules of parliamentary procedure.
The Chair of the Committee, or the person chairing the meeting, may discuss and have a vote on all matters coming before the Committee, except as otherwise provided by law.
