Motions for Approval

Eligibility to Speak and Vote:

All attendees may speak; attendees not members of the ACAPT must receive permission of the representatives to speak.  Only ACAPT Representatives may vote.

Representatives must register no later than one hour prior to the annual meeting in order to establish if a quorum is present. Staff will issue each designated representative a voting card for the annual meeting.

Conduct of the Meeting:

A member wishing to speak shall rise, address the Chair, wait to be recognized, and give his/her name and institution.  If a microphone is available, speakers will be recognized in the order of their lining up at the microphone.

No member may speak longer than three minutes at one time on any one question, nor more than once until all who wish to speak have been heard.

A member may speak for a third time, on any one question, only with the consent of the Chair or upon a majority vote of the members present and voting.

A timekeeper shall be appointed by the Chair.

In debate members must limit their remarks to the merits of a question.

All questions of order or appeal shall be decided by a majority voice or standing vote by representatives present and voting.

The rules contained in the current edition of Robert's Rules of Order shall govern the Council in all cases to which they are applicable and in which they are not inconsistent with the Guidelines, these Standing Rules, or any special rules of order adopted by the Council.

To submit a motion for vote at ELC, use this Template for submitting motions. Any motion to be voted on by the ACAPT membership must be submitted by no later than two months prior to the Business Meeting in October at ELC, per the Standing Rules.  Submit your motion by August 1 to acapt@apta.org.  The Board of Directors will review motions that are to be presented to membership and, if accepted, the motion will be sent to ACAPT's Reference Committee, then to the APTA Parliamentarian for final review to assure all formatting is accurately presented to the members.
