Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised (RONR) is the most comprehensive and most recognized authority on parliamentary procedure. It is used throughout the world by non-profit and not-for-profit organizations. RONR provides operational guidelines for members, officers, boards and committees. It answers most parliamentary questions and provides examples of terminology for use by members and officers. RONR provides essential information to ensure that meetings are fair and efficient.
The 12th edition supports modern technology while retaining the fundamental principals of parliamentary procedure—rules based on the rights of the majority, of the minority, of individual members, of absentees, and of all of these together.
Updated features of the 12th edition include section-based paragraph numbering to facilitate cross-references and e-book compatibility, an expanded appendix of charts, tables and lists, helpful summary explanations about postponing a motion, reconsidering a vote, making and enforcing points of order and appeals, and newly expanded procedures for filling blanks, new provisions regarding debate on nominations, reopening nominations, and completing an election after its scheduled time. This edition provides dozens more clarifications and additions to improve the presentation of existing rules, include new interpretations, and address common inquiries.
The spiral bound edition is only available at the National Association of Parliamentarians and contains the same information as the paperback with the added feature of spiral binding. The spiral bound edition is designed to lay flat and is excellent for accessibility for underlining passages and adding personal notes.
The spiral bound RONR is slightly larger than 4 ½ x 6 ½ inches, 816 pages.
