Roberta's Rules of Order: Sail Through Meetings for Stellar Results Without the Gavel
This one-of-a-kind book challenges nonprofit leaders (and anyone who runs meetings) to retire Robert's Rules of Order and adopt a simpler, friendlier, and more effective method for conducting meetings- Roberta's Rules of Order . Using traditional sailing ships as a metaphor, meetings and governance expert Alice Collier Cochran helps groups make the journey from the "shore" that represents the culture of Robert's Rules-procedural formality, debate, simple majority rule-to the opposite "shore" of Roberta's Rules-informality, dialogue, and decision-making options? In doing so, she helps them to conduct friendlier, more effective meetings and to take the first step toward creating flexible, democratic organizations.
