Hi! I’m Ann Macfarlane and I understand the pain of dysfunctional meetings

I know the challenge of holding discussions when tempers are hot and feelings run high. I’ve felt the embarrassment of not knowing how to give everyone a fair shake in discussion.

The surprising answer is Robert’s Rules of Order. This system provides effective tools for any group, even a very casual one. I’ve helped thousands of elected officials and nonprofit leaders cut hours off their meeting time and strengthen their decision-making process.

We take the 800+ pages of Robert's Rules and make them practical and user-friendly for you. Welcome to our site with dozens of resources!
