Webinar Overview:

This is Part 1 of Beyond the Basics. There are 13 ranking motions in Robert's Rules, and it's rare to understand how they interact. In this webinar, learn how to use them to achieve your goals. We will cover reconsider, rescind, table, and more.

Webinar Recordings:

Webinar recordings can be made available to registrants who are unable to attend live.

Webinar Instructor:

Ann Macfarlane, Jurassic Parliament

Webinar Schedule:

The webinar will be held from 10-11:30 a.m. Pacific Time. Attendees will be admitted 15 minutes before the webinar begins.

How to Participate:

Instructions will be emailed to attendees within 12 hours of the webinar and we recommend that you test the link to the meeting as soon as you get the instructions. The webinar is best viewed using Chrome as your browser. We recommend that you use a landline for both your phone and your internet connections.

This registration is for one person to attend. We manage our webinars on an honor-system basis; if more than one person from a utility wishes to attend, each is to register separately.

Webinar Fees:

Utility Member Rate: $110
Associate Member Rate: $165
Non-Member Rate: $330

Note: Organizations that register a group of employees will receive every fifth registration for free. For example, if you register five employees, you only pay for four; register 10 employees, you only pay for eight; and so on. There is nothing additional you need to do to receive this discount.
