Unfortunately, I don’t think that a motion to suspend is allowed for a rule in our P&P:
From Robert’s Rules of Order 25 Suspend the rules on when the motion to Suspend the Rules can be used:
Can be applied to any rule of the assembly except bylaws* (or rules contained in a constitution or corporate [page 253] charter).
When the subject has come up before, our P&P were considered to be equivalent to bylaws. A motion to suspend would be applicable to a rule that is in our OM (probably with a 2/3 vote required to approve).
Dear EC members,
I will need a mover and seconder to make a Motion to Suspend the Sponsor meeting 30 day advance notice and 14 day agenda distribution requirements defined in section 6 Meetings of the IEEE 802 P&P (see below) in order to proceed with the teleconference. Are there any takers?
If a Motion to Suspend is made, we'll conduct an EC email ballot with early close provision. If the motion passes in time, we will hold the teleconference meeting. If not, we will delay action until at least 30 days from now.
