Robert’s Rules Guide

Here’s What You’ll Learn

Attending a board meeting for the first time can be a nerve-racking experience. Are there assigned seats? Am I allowed to talk? Am I expected to talk? All fair questions. What most ED’s and members learn quickly is that the chairperson of the board directs the conversation using unconventional language like “so moved” or “let’s bring this meeting to order!” This language is so unconventional that it might seem like a secret code, but it’s not. It’s from the widely adopted wisdom of Robert’s Rules of Order. Here are some things this easy guide will teach you:

  • Who speaks, when, and why
  • Committee reports and structures
  • Board director and officer positions
  • The motion/voting process
