A very handy reference—small enough to take to meetings and straightforward enough to find what you need quickly.
The 2nd edition is fully updated and explains meeting motions, nominations, elections, voting, debates, amendments, and more. Includes chapters on the duties of board members and committee officers and presents lots of examples and motion summaries that make it easy for readers to grasp the basics of parliamentary procedure. Refers readers to the full text of Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised for more detailed information, and contains tables and charts that simplify the seemingly complex rules for at-a-glance answers.
