Hello! I am struggling with understanding one phrase "point of personal privilege", since I am trying to translate it into Russian. I could not find it in the 1915 version of the Roberts Rules of Order. What I found though was a similar-looking phrase "question of privilege". Could you please advise me on whether point of personal privilege is the same as a question of privilege? I would very much appreciate your help! Respectfully yours

At our next regular business meeting, I want to address the church on a pervasive and long-standing problem that many are aware of, but that has never been brought into the open. I have no motion to make; I merely want to get the issue in the open so that we can either acknowledge it or continue to ignore it. If we acknowledge, it could, eventually, affect every facet of our church life. Our church has been going downhill for thirty years, and if we do not change, we may soon reach the point of no return. How do I go about getting the floor to do this? Do I raise a point of personal privilege, or what? Thank you for your help.

Hello, I would like to know the proper procedure for establishing quorum when there is a conflict of interest. Our board has 4 members and 1 pastor which can vote if needed in case of tie. Our situation was: one board member and the pastor were in a conflict of interest for the issue at hand, and therefore did not vote, and one board member was not present at that meeting as they were out of the country. Therefore I see it that only 3 members were allowed to vote, 2 were present, therefore quorum was established and there vote on the matter should carry. Is this correct? and did it follow Roberts Rules of Order?
