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 past Snippet area for future reference.
