The current limitations on public and group gatherings due to Coronavirus/COVID-19 have affected all our board and membership meetings.

Social distancing, limitations of public and group gatherings, and other actions to limit exposure and flatten the spread of the disease have created disruption and confusion about how to hold meetings.

  • What happens when you have an annual meeting scheduled during the recommended social distancing period?
  • Are you allowed to reschedule meetings, including elections?
  • Can you hold meetings via telephone or online video conferencing?
  • If you can hold online meetings, are there special rules or regulations that you need to follow?
  • How can you ensure orderly discussion and successful outcomes?

Jurassic Parliament offers special guidelines for unique circumstances just like this, based on Robert’s Rules of Order.

In this timely recording, Ann Macfarlane will show you exactly what you need to know in order to hold efficient—and officially recognized—online or hybrid board meetings.

Normally this recording costs $37, but for a limited time, we’re offering it for $17.

In “Effective Video and Telephone Meetings,” you’ll learn general guidelines, best practices, and exceptions to usual procedures that will help you keep business going, even when meeting in the same physical space is not possible.

Each board member—especially the leader—will need to be flexible but skillful to navigate this new type of meeting. This recording will show you how.

About the Presenter:

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 cut hours off their meeting time and strengthen their council’s decision-making process. Nonprofit leaders credit our training with strengthening their board process and improving their decisions.
