|The standard on standards! A book that ensures smooth-running formal meetings.|
The book describes the proper procedures for use by businesses, not-for-profits, professional associations, and other organizations in clear, non-technical language anyone can understand. It disposes of obsolete, arcane motions that are useless in contemporary meeting settings, while emphasizing the fundamental principles of parliamentary law, such as Classes of Motions (main motions, restorative main motions, subsidiary motions, etc.); Voting, with special attention paid to proxy and absentee voting; Nominations and Elections for Office; Documents of Authority (statutes, charters, constitutions, bylaws, etc.); and Responsibilities and Conduct of Boards of Directors and Officers.
