What are the business meetings like?
Our club uses Parliamentary procedure to run the business meetings. An organized system for discussing topics and making decisions can make the processes more orderly, less frustrating and less time consuming. Decision making systems like parliamentary procedure are especially useful when new groups are forming or when controversial issues are being discussed. Learning to participate effectively in groups discussions and decision making is an important skill young people can use throughout their lives.
