JLBC LEARNING PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURE


JLBC LEARNING PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURE

Here is a list of JLBC tips that will aid individuals and JLBC groups in becoming familiar with and learning parliamentary procedures.

Practice!!

Have a "tip" at every meeting.

Elect a parliamentarian to keep track of the procedures and ensure the meeting is being run correctly and smoothly.

Make parliamentary procedure fun. Give "awards" to the persons who do the best and the worst at the end of each meeting.

Buy a gavel and bang it whenever someone is out of order.

Give a parliamentary procedure refresher course once a year and handouts to new members who may have missed the class.

Be consistent; do not change meeting formats. If you use parliamentary procedure, use it all the time. Do not change from meeting to meeting.

Buy Robert's Rules of Order for your organization. It's a long-term investment.

Watch parliamentary procedure in action (C-span, city government meeting, Congress, etc.)
