First, the motion to table is always in order. The chair has the option of 
calling for discussion or can rule it is out of order, which is horribly 
WRONG! If he does the latter, then a motion can be made to take the ruling 
away from the chair.

A motion to amend the main motion ----the Chair should call for any 
discussion. He did not.

Since the motion to amend was defeated by one vote, then the main motion must 
be subjected to discussion. Then a vote is taken. Was it?

Some people may have voted AGAINST the motion to amend because they would 
vote against the main motion. 
It was a disaster in parlimentary procedure, which the AHS purports to follow.

I suppose that I know the rationale for the amendment to the By-Laws---but 
did you notice that all the Executive Board and all the new v-p's either 
abstained or voted against the motion to amend.

 Some democracy.
