Fundamental Change in Parliamentary Procedure.
Sikkink, Don
The latest edition of "Robert's Rules of Order" (Newly Revised) has received praise for its improved clarity and its simplification of the complex rules of parliamentary procedure. The author questions, however, the relevancy and applicability of even these simplified legislative rules to the smaller informal group setting. Taking the position that there is need for a clear separation of parliamentary procedures for legislative bodies and for small informal organizations, he suggests development and standardization of a set of simple rules for use in informal groups. He proposes a model designed to provide a simplified version of parliamentary procedure which is clear, direct, easy to implement and easy to teach. (Author/LG)
