Parliamentary Procedure: Tool of Leadership. Fastback Series, No. 39.
This is not a manual on parliamentary procedure. It is a discussion that posits that parliamentary procedure is not a complicated and esoteric subject of interest and of use only to an enlightened few who have the fortitude to plow through a whole manual on the subject, but that parliamentary procedure is a practical tool of leadership. Three selected topics that are of central importance and that may be used to illustrate methods of analysis and preparation are presented here. The topics and the order of discussion are chosen as generally representative of a natural progression of events in a deliberative assembly. The topics are (1) review of the first principles of parliamentary discussion and deliberation from which are derived the various motions, procedures, and practices; (2) discussion of the preparation of original main motions calling for action by an organization; and (3) review o the conventional motions and procedures and their functional uses in the discussion and approval or disapproval of main motions.
