This is the most useful tool ever developed to empower members. It can be read in an hour or two, and used for years. After the initial joy of being elected or appointed to a board, committee, or delegate assembly fades, the need for concise and accurate information about that role begins. Rules for both Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised and American Institute of Parliamentarians Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure are included. The table of contents makes it easy to find information quickly. There are two sections: Meetings Explained and Motions Explained. Meetings Explained walks you through a meeting from call to order to adourn. Motions Explained gives virtually every motion that can come up in a meeting, arranged by its purpose rather than by its parliamentary classification. This information can be applied to any type of meeting from the smallest board or committee to the largest house of delegates. A Great Meeting Needs Great Members will take anyone from being intimidated to being effective.
