Limited enrolment. Register early to avoid disappointment!
Who should attend: Anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of meeting procedures and anyone who sits 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
Comments from past participants include:
"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."
