Parliamentary Procedure Workshop
Do your meetings run smoothly? Is your council or board debating issues until late into the night? By using parliamentary procedure, you can gain control and have more productive meetings.
This training, taught by professional parliamentarian Coco Siewert, will provide you with a guide to fair and orderly procedures in meetings that will help keep discussions focused and help you accomplish the business on the agenda. You will learn about basic principles and objectives of parliamentary procedure, knowledge of charters, amendments, handling motions, debate, public hearings, voting requirements, and agendas.

Free Cloud Computing Webinars
A key part of the League’s mission is to find new ways to assist our members. We believe that finding new technology is a big part of that effort. To that end, the League has been working with IBM on a number of initiatives. One of them is LotusLive, a cloud based, collaboration tool that allows users to share information and work on topics more efficiently.
