Not Actually that Scary.
Parliamentary Procedure
The Basics
-To Make a motion, raise your placard and wait to be recognized.
The phrase is
Motions & Seconds
If discussion is getting too heated or repetitive and you need to go back to something later, you can move to table a motion for a certain amount of time.
Amendments & Tabling
Placard Vote
Point of Order- If you know the board has skipped a step or isn't following order, you can point out what got missed!
Other things to Know
Bid Defense
- Always Address the Chair
This is usually the RHA or NRHH President. This keeps people from attacking each other. (You are speaking to the chair, not at each other)
In RHA, we use Robert's Rules of Order. It's important to use these rules so board room runs smoothly.
- Raise Your Placard to be put on the Speaker's List
When the list taker sees you, he or she will nod. You may then lower your placard. Remember, you may ONLY speak after being called from the speakers list, with very few exceptions. (ie a point of priviledge)
- If you don't know what's going on....
'I move to...."
NOT "I motion to."
Think of Madagascar. To get something to the floor, we have to move it, move it.
The motion needs to be seconded. To second a motion, raise your placard.

- end discussion
-end Q&A
- Bring _____ to the table
- table things
- amend
- extend time
- vote
- vote by acclimation
You can move to....
" I move to table Amendment Purple Unicorn until after dinner."
Make sure to give it a time so it will be brought up again!
To change something in the first motion, you can amend to change something in the first motion. Each amendment needs to be voted on before the original or previous item can be voted on.
For example..
'I move to amend MMB to include ponies as well as unicorns.'

This can get confusing, so ask if you get lost.
Secret Vote
Vote by Acclimation
There are 3 types of voting.
Raise your placard and remember to Lock your elbow!
Write down our school name (NACURH& IACURH) or your hall (campus) and your vote, it will be collected!
This means that all votes will be counted as assent. This shouldn't be used all the time, especially NOT on financial matters, but when something won't be discussed it comes in handy!
To move in to a vote, you can move to vote or call to question.
Point of Inquiry- Want to do something but not sure how? Use this to ask!
Point of Clarification- When you need to ask a clarifying question about an answer. You do not need to be on the speaker's list for this!
Point of Personal Privilege- If the room is too hot, you can't hear, see, etc. ask for this. If you can't hear, you can't vote. Don't need to be the speaker's list for this!
Bid defense will begin with a 30 second opening statement followed by Q&A and discussion. After discussion, there will be a 2 minute closing statement.
You may have 1 note taker.
Note: At the regional level, this will also include a Pro-Con session after Q&A.
- no outside information, except in q&a!
- be respectful
-address cons in closing statement
- Keep it honest, concise, and most of all explain why your nominee deserves this award!
Amendments are where you change the already existing legislation.
