Overview


Originally published as a slim document in 1896, General Henry M. Robert's classic guide to smooth, orderly, and fairly conducted meetings has sold close to five million copies in nine editions. The only book containing the completely developed Robert's Rules of Order subject matter, this latest edition will continue the book's reputation as the gold standard of meeting procedure for parliamentarians and novice club presidents and members alike. Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the past decade's technological advances and usage, this tenth edition contains new information on how to conduct meetings over the Internet, on phone and video conference calls, and with members in absentia. The best book from which to learn all about running and taking an effective part in meetings, General Robert's gift of order is as indispensable now as it was a century ago.

RONR, as it is almost always referred to, is not light reading, nor was it intended to be. But if you are looking for answers to parliamentary procedure questions, this is without a doubt the bible. This book is very well indexed and cross-referenced so that you can find the answer to most any topic several different ways. For any serious student of parliamentary procedures, this is the book to own.

This book is awesome and explains every thing you would possibly need to know to run a smooth meeting. Lots of reading, but worth it!

I purchase the book to obtain a better understanding of the language most commonly used when leading a meeting. The terminology in the book was spot on and extremely helpful.

While most groups use a simplified variation on Roberts Rules, this book permits the average user to learn the intermediate and advanced techniques of these meeting procedures. Even the well versed user of Parliamentary Procedure 'can turn the page' only to find a concept they were not aware of.
