Question: Our President Makes Motions

At our meetings after each person presents their idea, the PTO President stands up and says, "I would like to make a motion to approve..." I thought it was the duty of either the person presenting or someone else to make the motion for approval, not the President?

You're right. Technically, the president should be saying something like "Would somebody like to make a motion to approve..." The person presiding at the meeting is not supposed to make the motions.
