Parliamentary Procedure

"Parliamentary procedure give us the right way to make a motion, to second a mothion and to amend a motion. Robert's "Rules of Order" are the oldest and most recognized set of rules on the best ways to conduct business meetings. The rules were first printed in 1876 by General Henry M. Roberts of the Engineering Corps, United States Army. If you will follow these rules, they will help keep your group orderly, and help you reach decisions with less confusion. If your chairman is fair in using these rules, both the majority and minority in your clubs and groups will be heard and respected." -- 4-H Exploring Citizenship, Unit III -- My Clubs and Groups (4HCIM12)
