Since this is audio-only, some explanation is required.

The first motion from the floor was cut off by the chairman, who cited a 5-minute time limit on each committee report. A paper agenda had been passed out with this limit, but (I checked the recording) was never even voted on. Even IF it had passed, a time-limit cannot be an excuse to ignore all points or debate requests from the floor.

It's worth noting we had listened to hours of speeches before this.

From this point on, crowds of people calling points or asking to speak were ignored, the floor mics went off, and they even ordered the removal of someone (the delegation stood up to the sergeants at arms, and she was not removed).

The time limit was used as an excuse to close down all input from the floor. Granted, as none of us had experience, our presentation wasn't the best. But the chair does seem to me to be ignoring the rules.
