Modern Parliamentary Procedure
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
This book simplifies the traditional complex, overly technical rules of procedure. Free of the often misleading terminology and ill-advised complications of parliamentary orthodoxy, this classic manual is entirely compatible with accepted parliamentary procedures.
Author Ray E. Keesey presents models for more efficient democratic action by modernizing parliamentary terminology; presenting a simpler, more logical classification of motions; eliminating superfluous motions; and providing valuable ideas for the prevention and handling of disruptions. Ideal for associations, clubs, student groups, and other deliberative bodies seeking flexible, effective procedural rules.
