Parliamentary Procedure

Purpose of Parliamentary Procedure

Parliamentary procedure, or Robert’s Rules of Order, is a set of rules for conduct at meetings.  It is designed to assure orderly meetings which are democratic and fair.  Parliamentary procedure allows every member the right to speak and to make motions, and it allows the group to follow the will of the majority while still hearing the views of the minority.  Yet the use of Robert’s Rules in itself does not insure that the ideals of free speech and individual rights will be met.  Everyone involved with the meeting must also work to create an atmosphere of trust, mutual respect, and shared purpose.

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
