• After repeated warnings, the chair should direct the secretary to take down objectionable  or  disorderly words used by the member. The direction of the chair, and the words  taken down pursuant to it, are entered in the minutes only if the chair finds it  necessary to name the offender.  RONR (11th ed.), p. 646, ll. 17 -25

  •  If a member denies having said anything improper, the assembly can decide by vote whether the words recorded by the secretary are accurate.  RONR (11th ed.), p. 647, ll. 28 -

  • If the member obeys, the matter can be dropped or any member can move to order a penalty or the chair can first ask, “What penalty shall be imposed on the member?”  RONR (11th ed.), p. 647 ll. 9 - 20

  • The case may be sufficiently resolved by:
    1.  an apology or a withdrawal of objectionable statements or remarks given by the offender;
    2. a censure.
    3. the offender being required to leave the hall for all or part of the remainder of the meeting or until s/he is prepared to apologize. RONR (11th ed.), p. 647 ll.
