Free Parliamentary Law Workshop Saturday, Jan. 24th
According to Robertâ€™s Rules of Order, “parliamentary procedure” is based on the consideration of the rights:
- of the majority
- of the minority (especially a large minority greater than one-third)
- of individual members
- of absentee members
- of all of these groups taken together
“The application of parliamentary law is the best method yet devised to enable assemblies of any size, with due regard for every memberâ€™s opinion, to arrive at the general will on the maximum number of questions of varying complexity in a minimum amount of time and under all kinds of internal climate ranging from total harmony to hardened or impassioned division of opinion.”
With that in mind, here’s a great way for you to learn more about Parliamentary Law – a free workshop being conducted on Saturday, Jan. 24th, from 10:30am-Noon at the Southwest Branch Library:
