Orderly Room

The Orderly Room is intended as a location at which Comrades of VFW Post 12093 'John Lukac' can get information and forms used by the Post to conduct its business. Examples of information include a copy of the Post By-laws and Standing Rules. Examples of forms are Substantive Motion and Officer and Committee Report Forms. Parliamentary Procedure and VFW By-Laws (Article X) require all Committee and by extension Officers (Officers, for reports, are treated as Committees of one) be submitted in writing and be signed by a majority of committee members or the officer. Post Standing Rules authorize all such reports, which have been published by the Adjutant, to be treated as if read. Post Standing Rules also state that all Substantive Motions must be written and submitted to the Chair (The Post Commander presides at Post meetings. Whoever presides is often called the Chair in the rules and by-laws.)
