What is the CA rule about when a motion requires prior notice and when a motion can be made spontaneously? I couldn't find it on the CA website. Roberts Rules allows for a motion to rescind a prior position to be made spontaneously, but it requires a 2/3 vote for passage. Does CA has a similar rule?

There's the three reading rule for major motions - https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1AfcBYhQQRjdFMxRDVncFZkS0E/edit (from http://www.columbiaassociation.org/board/board-orientation-documents) FWIW, I don't actually think personally this rule makes a whole lot of sense, but it is the rule. Unless there is a 2/3 supermajority, voting for the exception, the motion must be read three times.

Section 3 talks about the agenda.
CA is required to place such items on the agenda and publish the agenda at least 7 days ahead of the meeting.
