Roberts Rules

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.

Roberts Rules Of Order

What are Robert’s Rules of Order? The first edition of the book was published in February, 1876 by U.S. Army Major Henry Martyn Robert. Its procedures were loosely modeled after those used in the United States House of Representatives. Robert wrote Robert’s Rules of Order after presiding over a church meeting and discovering that delegates from different areas of the country did not agree about proper procedure. The book is now in its 10th edition; Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised (RONR).

Parliamentary Procedure in Action

"Parliamentary Procedure in Action" is a program designed to help participants learn basic par­ liamentary procedure. The program is split into five 15-minute sessions which can be presented over five meetings or in one meeting lasting at least 75 minutes. Included in the program are preparation guidelines, instructions on how to present the program, and a complete script/outline, including exercises and PowerPoint visuals. To begin, study the instructions and script, assemble your group of participants, and follow the script and exercises as you present the program. Be sure to read the exercises beforehand, since they require you to select someone before the session to assist you.
