Putting Precedence of Motions into Practice
The system of “precedence of motions” is central to Robert’s Rules of Order, yet it sometimes appears overwhelming. Using toy dinosaurs as props, you will engage in scripted and free-form practice making motions according to the 13 ranked motions in Robert’s Rules of Order. You will also learn how to use of Point of Order and Appeal.
PURPOSE To give you confidence in applying the system of “precedence of motions” to the meeting process.
OUTCOME After taking this workshop, you will be able to:
- State the principle underlying Precedence of Motions in Robert’s Rules.
- List the eight steps to process a Main Motion and three secondary motions.
- Make and respond to a Point of Order when mistakes in applying precedence of motions are made.
