ARTICLE I - JOINT CONVENTIONS

CALLING MEMBER TO ORDER

1.06 If any member of the Joint Convention is called to order for offensive words in debate, the member calling to order shall report the words to which exception is taken and the Secretary shall record them. No member may be called to order for any language used in debate if exception is not taken before any other member has spoken or any other business has taken place. A member called to order shall immediately sit down unless another member moves to permit the member to explain. In any case, the Joint Convention, if appealed to, shall decide without debate. Only if the decision is in favor of the member called to order shall the member be at liberty to proceed.
