The first part of this program will cover important aspects of parliamentary procedure, including: quorum, agendas, steps in processing a motion, the concept of precedence of a motion, the script of a motion, the meaning of votes, and basic characteristics of a motion.

In order to have a successful board governance, each board member needs an understanding of the role of the board in relationship to the remainder of the organization. During the second part of this program, we will cover board basics, board governing documents, fiduciary duty, and board/staff relationship.

This program is presented by Nancy Sylvester, certified professional parliamentarian. This workshop is an adaptation of two programs presented at the 2015 Library State of Mind Conference.
