Parliamentary Procedure Made Easy

Monday, November 27, 2017 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

“Parliamentary Procedure Made Easy” - FREE
Parliamentary procedure is a term that many believe is limited to government associations; however, corporations, nonprofits, faith based organizations, schools, civic clubs, etc. all use parliamentary procedure to conduct business meetings. The courts have held that these organizations are subject to the principles of parliamentary law if they do not have procedural policies of their own. As a result, ignoring or incorrectly applying parliamentary procedure can lead to embarrassment and lawsuits. This presentation will include the following:
1. Parliamentary Procedure-Its Purpose, Use, and General Principles
2. Transacting Business at a Meeting
3. Summary of Steps in Handling a Motion
4. Types of Motions-Definitions, Examples and Precedence of Motions
5. Other Rules Governing the Consideration of Motions
6. Tips on Parliamentary Procedure
7. Committees and Elections
