Parliamentary Procedures Workshop
2/3 Skill Builder credit

All co-op boards utilize parliamentary procedures to keep business discussions on track and to run their meetings with an objective and efficient process. Parliamentary procedure was developed by General Henry M. Robert during the Civil War to bring order to officer meetings. The basic premise of Robert’s Rules of Order is to protect each member’s rights, while seeing that the majority rules. Parliamentary procedure is designed to accomplish one thing at a time, bringing each to resolution before going on to the next, all the while seeing that courtesy is extended to everyone. This process has proved to be one of the most effective means by which individuals can take orderly action as a group

Topics may include:

  • Agendas
  • Consent agenda do's and don'ts
