By Donald A. Tortorice

Lending Library Number: 107

If you want meetings that run more efficiently, for a shorter period of time, and with a minimum of disagreements, then you need this framework of established procedures for business meetings. Simpler and more effective than Robert's Rules, The Modern Rules of Order focuses on promoting timely consideration of the substance of the meeting, rather than ritualistic procedure.

This easy-to-read guidebook includes a one-glance motions chart, so the chair can easily see options for responding to various motions from the floor, and a quick-reference index, similarly helpful for making quick responses to difficult situations in running a meeting. This basic and easily understood meeting framework is perfect for any type of business meeting, whether the business is that of a major corporation or a small nonprofit association.
