Parliamentary Procedure Workshop

Presented by Joel Book, ACB, ALB, District Parliamentarian

Why do we need parliamentiary procedure?

Robert's Rules of Order and parliamentary procedures, in general, are intended to ensure that a decision-making meeting runs smoothly and efficiently. Everyone's rights are respected and no-one's time is wasted. Such meetings are common in voluntary organizations like Toastmasters, homeowners associations, professional groups, and anywhere else a group of equals needs to make a decision as a collective.

What will you learn in this workshop?

This parliamentary procedure workshop is meant to be a 'how-to' session on effective participation in a meeting run under Robert's Rules of Order.

  • Learn the structure and common motions of a meeting

  • Hear the explanation of what common motions are for

  • Learn how to use them

Pre-scripted, interactive exercises will be used to illustrate how motions work in the context of a Toastmasters club. Joel will review:

  • How to conduct a club officer election

  • When the full formality of the rules can be relaxed and when they shouldn't be

  • Tips on effectively chairing a meeting

Scheduled at Schoolcraft College in Livonia, Michigan on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 between 6:00 and 8:30 pm. Plan to attend and learn what you need to know in order to effectively and efficiently run a meeting or a decision-making session at your club. Club Officer Elections are the perfect time to use Parliamentary Procedure.
