. . . a member does not need to be recognized to second a motion

. . . a nomination does not require a second

. . . to amend a motion, you may move to: "add," "insert," "strike out," or "strike out and insert" text

. . . nominations for an office may be made in three ways:

     - nominations from the floor

     - nominations by petition

     - nominations by a nominating committee

. . . the president should give the maker of a motion the first chance to discuss it
