A Call To Order. New Directions for Student Councils, Number 3.
Wood, Donald I.
Rules for parliamentary procedure are essential to any organization in the conduct of its business sessions. Originally these rules were devised to guide a parliament or congress in orderly procedure. In student councils and other school organizations, there is not time to consider orderly procedure as deeply as parliaments must--nor is there need for maneuvers of delay and sidetracting. Instead, student officers need a reasonably direct, straightforward guide for running a meeting. That is what this booklet is intended to accomplish. It will serve as an important and convenient reference to many student groups. However helpful this booklet will be, readers should remember that parliamentary procedure is necessary and useful only to the extent that it is learned in connection with the function it fulfills. To study this booklet as subject matter to be memorized for its own sake would not be profitable. (Author/PC)
