Webinar Overview:

Robert’s Rules of Order is the most common authority for running board meetings, yet the book is 800+ pages long and difficult to read. This interactive class distills the key points that board members need to know in order to work within this system and serve their community effectively. Learn how to make motions and amend them, the correct role of the chair, how to deal with inappropriate remarks, and more.

Learning Objectives:

  • List four fundamental guidelines
  • Make a point of order when guidelines are broken
  • Label and respond to five inappropriate remarks
  • Make and amend a motion
  • State the principle of Precedence of Motions
