a. Shomerit Ha-Brit BBG's name Let's rewind quickly. A motion?!?! What is that? A motion is used to modify the constitution, or set of rules. Motions must be written before a meeting A motion should be written as such:
Maker: Name(s), position(s)
Second: Name(s), position(s)
etc, etc,
Be it resolved that.......
When presented, a motion should be read to the body by the maker/second. From there, the N'siah will ask for dissent. If there is none, the motion passes. If there is, members can suggest to motion into things like pro/con, questions of wording and intent, a moderated caucus, or a vote. Pro/Con:
Yes or no questions about how the motion is phrased. Wording/Intent:
Representatives from 2 sides will provide equal amounts of pros and cons. Moderated Caucus:
Open discussion where anybody can talk (on a set time limit) Types of Votes:
Voice Vote
Rising/Standing Vote
Hand Vote
Ballot Vote Need to leave the meeting? Say "ami" Uh Oh! The N'siah just rapped the gavel. What does that mean? 1 rap: sit down! 2 raps: be quiet! 3 raps: stand up! There you have it! All the basics of a BBG Business meeting...made SIMPLE! Check out this sample motion!
