Parliamentary procedure, as outlined in that famous reference Robert's Rules of Order, as well as several other procedural rulebooks, is the system that keeps public meetings moving along while allowing everyone to have their fair input. Unfortunately, Robert's is a complex and intimidating reference that new and casual meeting leaders and participants can find overwhelming. The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Parliamentary Procedure Fast-Track lets readers bypass the arcane language, sort out the complicated system of motions, and get to what they really want to do--preside over and participate in smoothly run meetings.

In this slim volume, readers get:

- A quick guide to the different sets of parliamentary procedure and which is most appropriate for the organization.
- Advice on setting and managing an agenda.
- The essence of what readers need to know about the most common types of motions.
- Rules for debates and voting.
- Forming and working on effective committees.
- Troubleshooting for meetings gone awry.
- Quick guidance for writing and submitting minutes.
