I made a presentation at our work shop last week. The President of our board got up and told me he had allowed me 15 minutes to speak. I asked him where in our rules it gave a time limit? He said that he has the right to set the limit,is this true? I asked for it to be opened for discussion. I raised my hand to ask a question but I was ignored. When I finally spoke out...he said that I must be reconized. I realize that you can only ask one question and then you must wait until everyone has a turn before you can ask another question. He wouldn't allow me to ask a question since I had just given the presentation. What does giving the presentation have to do w/ being able to ask a question? I'm I correct in my thinking?
