In parliamentary procedure
, a quarterly time interval
is said to elapse between two meetings of a body when there are three full calendar months between those meetings.
- If a meeting takes place on January 15th:
- A quarterly time interval elapses between the meeting and one on May 1st
- A quarterly time interval does not elapse between the meeting and one on April 20th.
- If a body is meeting and its next scheduled meeting is more than a quarterly time interval away, it is customary to appoint a board or committee to approve the minutes of the current meeting.
- Motions which have been laid on the table die if the next meeting is more than a quarterly time interval away.
