Have you ever gone to a time‐wasting, unproductive, and maybe even disorderly meeting? Since meetings are part of most people’s everyday lives, chances are you have been subjected to one or more meetings that make you want to swear off meetings forever. This is exactly why the world needs more parliamentary procedures and parliamentarians. The question is how we can get the public to sit up and take notice? A strong, defined base of knowledge, skills, and practice provides a clear solution. The body of knowledge is the framework for an orderly approach to parliamentary procedure education rather than a haphazard collection of random programs. When you build a house, you need blueprints. The body of knowledge is that blueprint for achieving great people in great meetings. The body of knowledge helps define what a profession is. It provides consistency on how things are approached and learned. It considers the breadth of diversity related to how parliamentary procedure may be used.
