    OUTCOME  After taking this workshop, you will be able to:

    1. State the principle underlying Precedence of Motions in Robert’s Rules.
    2. List the eight steps to process a Main Motion and three secondary motions.
    3. Make and respond to a Point of Order when mistakes in applying precedence of motions are made.
