Share club decision making, meet the goals of all members.  Parliamentary Procedure is a framework to facilitate fair decision making.  Some Toastmasters fear that Robert’s Rules will create havoc in their clubs. Some believe decisions should be made by the executive members.

  • Learn the Protocol of District Business meeting

In this session you will learn the what and why of Henry Robert’s basic rules, (and what makes Joanne so passionate about them).

FYI when Joanne was District Governor (08-09), comments after the Spring district business meeting were, “I didn’t know business meetings could be s-o-o-o much fun.”

After one District Parliamentary Ed session “One highlight of the conference was that lady who did Parliamentary Procedure. Who knew that would be interesting!”

In this session you will learn:

  • Henry’s personal philosophy and how he came to write meeting rules

  • The value of Business meetings

  • The 13 basic motions

  • List of the 3 best Parliamentary Resources

Our Presenter: Joanne Morrison DTM, PDG

Joanne’s passion for Parliamentary Procedure began with the frustration of trying to be understood at a large business meeting.  She vowed to be heard, the next time. She became a Toastmaster 32 years ago, fortunately Surrey Toastmasters practiced Robert’s Rules… Joanne was hooked!

Many customers return to Joanne’s other passion, Couch Potato , where Joanne and her staff’s have the shared philosophy: “Your comfort, Your fashion at the Store that friends tell friends about”

Joanne is married to Ray who also works in the furniture industry. She is shares that her three grown children and two grandchildren are really nice people.
