How To Run A Meeeting

If you would like to know more about how Parliamentarian Procedure from Little Ben, click here for my DVD called How To Run A Meeting.

If a motion is made and the votes are taken, is it required to ask for the nays votes?

Hello Rick,

The answer is is that the presiding officer must ask for both the "yes" and "no" votes even if the "yes" votes seem to be unanimous. May I recommend to you some very useful DVD's and book that can be bought from our company Robert McConnell Productions? Both the DVD "How to conduct a meeting?" and "Parliamentary Procedure made Simple" would help you a great deal and your organization, too, in learning proper meeting procedures. Also the book, which is really easy to read and understand, "Robert's Rules of Order Simplified and Applied." And if you want to learn parliamentary procedure from me, get the DVD "How to run a meeting." At can be purchased at our web site: parli.com.

Cheerio,

Little Ben
