Rules of Order Helps in Having Effective Board Meetings

  1. 1. RULES OF ORDER HELPS IN HAVING EFFECTIVE MEETINGS By Associated Property Management A time-tested way to control meetings is with rules of order. Robert’s Rules of Order will help a Board of Directors and guide them in their deliberations. Principles of the rules of order are: The majority rules The minority has a right to be heard Everyone is entitled to an opinion Only one subject is addressed at a time The purpose of having rules is to assure that there is an orderly conduct of business, to protect the rights of the members of the organization, provide for a procedure for resolving questions, and provide the groundwork for decorum in debate. The fundamentals of Robert’s Rules of Order are: The chairperson presides There is a fixed agenda Members speak only when given the floor by the chairperson Discussion is permitted only after a motion has been made and seconded Decisions are made by majority vote Rules of debate are obeyed. The overall success of a Board of Directors Meeting is directly proportional to the effectiveness of the chairperson in applying these rules to manage the discussion and achieving the meeting objective. Sometimes it takes a forceful leader along with the cooperation of the other board members to achieve an effective and well run meeting. 01-01-10
