CONSENSUS

CONSENSUS

consensus. A general agreement; collective opinion. See general consent under CONSENT(2).

¡°The regular method for the chair to use is to ask the members, ¡®Is it the consensus of this meeting that … is agreed to?¡¯ or, ¡®Is it the will of the assembly that … is agreed to?¡¯ or, ¡®Is there an objection?¡¯ Consensus has been used successfully throughout the years by Quakers, Indians, New England town meetings, and others as a deci-sion-making procedure. It permits compromise. In small groups where less formality is required, it is a simple method for making decisions.

¡°General consent is an equivalent to consensus, when done without objection. Otherwise, a formal vote must be taken.¡± Floyd M. Riddick & Miriam H. Butcher, Riddick’s Rules of Procedure 56 (1985).
