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.
