Understanding & Using Parliamentary Procedure
Are your meetings out of control, lengthy, confusing? Parliamentary procedure is a useful tool for conducting meetings, assuring fairness, and completing business in an orderly manner. People who are knowledgeable about Robert’s Rules of Order can improve the quality of meetings and frequently affect the outcomes.
What’s your “PQ” (Parliamentary Quotient)? Take this 2-hour online course and learn the purpose behind the rules, simplify the motion making process, clarify the rules of debate, and increase your PQ.
This course will encourage participants to learn new skills, including:
- History, Foundation, and Benefits of Parliamentary Procedure
- Motions (Main & Secondary)
- Steps in Making Motions
- Precedence of Motions
- Rules for Small Groups
- Guidelines for Minutes
A certificate of completion with two continuing education hours listed will automatically generate upon completion of course in its entirety.
