Limited Enrolment. Register early to avoid disappointment!

Who should attend: Anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of meeting procedures, and those who sit on a board or committee.

Learning level: All levels

We will discuss the application of parliamentary procedure and Robert's Rules of Order in meetings. You will gain an understanding of rules and the principles that they are intended to uphold. As a result of this workshop, you will be better able to advise your clients on the correct and practical application of rules in meetings, to facilitate progress and effective decision making.

After this workshop you will:

  • have a practical understanding of rules of order and how they should be applied
  • gain tools to facilitate group decision making in a democratic and efficient manner
  • expand your focus from the technical rules to what they are supposed to achieve
  • be better able to advise your clients on resolving procedural disputes

Past participants had this to say about the workshop:

"A potentially dry and technical subject was made relevant and interesting..."

"Thanks to your guidance, our AGM was shorter, simpler, and less adversarial."

"I now realize that our problem is not one disruptive member—it's a lack of discipline and structure in our meetings."
