Divide the Question
It happens to all of us – we try to be more efficient, doing several things at the same time. It’s become so common it has a name — multi-tasking. Unfortunately, this doesn’t work well for most deliberative assemblies; instead, it tends to create confusion and frustration. Members can avoid these problems by learning how to make the motion to Divide the Question.
What’s a Snippet?
Snippets are single page articles that explain some aspect of leadership, meetings or parliamentary procedure. New Snippets are released on the first day of every month on the Snippet page at www.agreatmeeting.com. After a month they are placed in the Snippet Niche for future reference.
