  • #41. NEW! Common Parliamentary Procedure CDE Errors

    From Al Gage, Professional Registered Parliamentarian, Professional Accredited Parliamentarian, Licensed Parliamentarian

    After watching 17 teams in the national senior event and 13 teams in the novice event at Louisville, here is a list of the top five common mistakes:

    1) Debate not germane to the motion or secondary motion that was pending.

    2) Being recognized for motions that do not require recognition-(Parliamentary Inquiry, Question of Privilege, and rising for a Division.)

    3) Gaveling through motions to make the time requirement.

    4) Not restating a motion either in announcing the result of the vote or putting the question to a vote. It is improper to say simply "the amendment failed" or "those in favor of the amendment" [RONR (11th ed.) p. 49-52]

    5) Stating the rules for every motion. Although this may or may not be a parliamentary error, it does take time that otherwise could be utilized to score points.
