  • Chapter 14.2: LeadershipThe normal life cycle of a main motion is:A member seeks permission to speak by standing and saying, Mr. President (Mr./Madam /chairman). The chair recognizes the member, giving them the floor (permission to speak). The member will move that (the organization does something). Another member seconds the motion: I second it, without recognition or rising. The chair states the motion for all to hear. The members debate the motion, speaking for or against itThe chair puts the question on adopting the motion to a vote. E.g., all in favor say aye; all opposed say no. The chair announces the vote result. E.g., the ayes have it, the motion is adopted, and we will (what the motion said to do).
