Robert Says

J. S from Springerville writes, “We waste a lot of time at our meetings arguing about quorum.  Whose job is it to determine if a quorum is present?”

Robert says, “The presiding officer determines whether a quorum is present before calling the meeting to order.  A member can raise a point of order if that member notices the apparent absence of a quorum.”
