Roberts Rules of Order Cheat Sheet

The following comes from a handout presented by journalism professor Kenna Griffin at a recent convention of College Media Association and Associated Collegiate Press.

Robert’s Rules of Order is the oldest and most commonly used guide to parliamentary procedure, a set of rules for conduct at meetings that allows everyone to be heard and to make decisions without confusion. The original book dates back to 1915. Because of its age, the book has been adapted many times and has specific rules about meeting processes, making it confusing to some.The document available via the link below lays out the structure of a typical meeting using this method. Chances are that your Student Government Association uses–or, more to the point, is supposed to use– this method. Learn the method and know the meeting even better than those who called the meeting.
