SPOTLIGHT ON PARLIAMENTARIAN
All too often, an organization has an “honorary” officer position called
Parliamentarian, with little or no function in helping to run a meeting. Quite
the contrary, a parliamentarian has a valid and important responsibility to
advise the president on procedures and effective meeting management skills. An
appointed or hired parliamentarian should know parliamentary rules as well as
(or better than) the person conducting the meeting.
This document includes information to help parliamentarians perform their tasks
more effectively and with less stress. It begins with a complete list of
expectations/duties of a parliamentarian, provides pointers for a person to
understand how rules govern organizations, plus offers a myriad of suggestions
to help someone carry out the functions of a convention parliamentarian.
A dozen FAQs are answered and a chart of motions is provided to help any
parliamentarian perform their job more effectively.
