Using Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised learn to plan meetings where...

✓ work gets done,
✓ people talk freely and fairly,
✓ participants know they’ve been heard,
✓ leaders encourage diverse opinions while maintaining order 

✓ the majority decides.

 

 

There is a motion for that! Julie Pioch, PRP
An introduction to the hierarchy of motions, what you need to do to use them and why knowing about them helps keep a meeting productive. This lesson will also include a review of how to get a main motion to the floor.
