Now that the election is over, are you ready for the meetings to begin?

New board members—and even current board members—can be overwhelmed with the rules that meetings follow, including special dialogue, procedures, and how to handle public conflict.

For example, do you know:

When you’re allowed to speak in a meeting, and in what order?
The difference between “discussion” and “conversation” in meetings?
When two-thirds votes are required instead of the usual majority vote?
When you should second a motion even if you disagree with it?
In “Robert’s Rules Survival Guide,” Ann G. Macfarlane, Professional Registered Parliamentarian, will use a fictional meeting to guide you through what goes on in meetings.

Ann will provide step-by-step instructions for how meetings are conducted. You’ll learn the proper order of a meeting, what to say and when to say it—including sample dialogue you can use—and what actions are and are not acceptable. (Even long-time board members will learn new things.)

Ann will also provide suggestions for modifications to Robert’s Rules that help meetings run quickly and smoothly—including a quick fix to take better advantage of people’s time and energy.

Learn what you need to know for your first board meeting, including what to say and when to say it.
