Special Rules of Order Defined

Special rules of order, as defined by Robert’s Rules of Order, Newly Revised, are rules that supplement or modify the parliamentary rules contained in the parliamentary authority adopted by an organization.

Special rules of order are adopted by the Board of Directors individually if and when the need arises. A special rule of order can be adopted by a two-thirds majority vote of the Board and although such a rule remains in effect until rescinded or amended, it is not binding if a two-thirds majority desires to suspend it temporarily.
