Vice President of Parliamentary Law, Connor Brown
If you were fortunate to attend Nationals and sit in on the Business Session, you saw first hand how Parliamentary Procedure works to bring order to a session, to hear discussion, and follow a vote through an organization. It gives every individual a right to speak.
Using Parliamentary Procedure at your Chapter Meetings will make your meetings run smoothly and efficiently enabling your chapter president to cover needed agenda items.
Parliamentary Procedure is not only a great way of making sure everyone at your meetings gets a chance to participate in discussions, it is also a STAR Event Competition.
Here are some helpful resources:
