Parliamentary Procedure Made Easy

Mon 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.

Types of Motions-Definitions, Examples and Precedence of Motions 5. Other Rules Governing the Consideration of Motions 6. Tips on Parliamentary Procedure 7.
