Meetings that move: using Robert’s Rules for public engagement

Transform your meetings by learning how to better focus discussion, encourage participation, keep members on task, and make strategic motions. Become even more effective as a presiding officer by using parliamentary procedure and its foundational principles: Equality of Rights, Majority Decision, Minority Rights, Right to Discussion, Right to Information, Fairness and Good Faith. Bring your questions and memorable board and public meeting moments to this session.

NOTE: From her experience working with APTA, Ms. Merkle has offered to spend a half hour consulting with individual APTA member registrants late Tuesday afternoon, October 1, and Wednesday morning, October 2. Interested members should sign up on site at the conclusion of the session.
