Question: Which edition of Robert's Rules is official?
Which one do professional parliamentarians refer to? Answer: The
National Association of Parliamentarians and the American Institute of
Parliamentarians only recognize one book as the current official
parliamentary authority: Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised.
Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (RONR) is
the only authorized parliamentary procedure
guide, completely revised and updated by the authorized Robert's Rules
Originally published as a
slim document in 1876, General Henry M. Robert's classic guide to
smooth, orderly, and fairly conducted meetings has sold close to
five million copies in nine editions. The only book containing the
completely developed Robert's Rules of Order subject matter, this
latest edition will continue the book's reputation as the gold
standard of meeting procedure for parliamentarians and novice club
presidents and members alike. Thoroughly revised and updated to
reflect the past decade's technological advances and usage, this
tenth edition contains new information on how to conduct meetings
over the Internet, on phone and video conference calls, and with
members in absentia. The best book from which to learn all about
running and taking an effective part in meetings. "Where there is no
law, but every man does what is right in his own eyes, there is the
least of real liberty," said General Henry M. Robert, and his gift
of order is as indispensable now as it was a century ago.
Robert's Rules of Order
by Thomas J. Balch, William J. Evans, Daniel H. Honemann, Henry M. Robert
At last! A concise and user-friendly guide to the essentials for
conducting a meeting. Written by the officially sanctioned Robert's
Rules of Order authorship team, this short easy-to-read
"cheat-sheet" of a guide briefs readers on the rules most often needed
at meetings--from debates and amendments to votes and nominations.
With sample dialogues, helpful references to the "big" book
throughout, and handy tips, Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised
in Brief is the essential abbreviated meeting rulebook.
In a club, a condo association, or board, how is
business carried over from one meeting to the next? How is a meeting
best kept on track? Who keeps the order and who decides what the
agenda will be in the first place?
The answers to these concerns of assembly can be
found in the definitive rulebook of orderly meetings: Robert's
Rules of Order Newly Revised 10th Edition. But weighing in at over
700 pages, at least 80 percent of its content will be needed less than
20 percent of the time. Those not well-versed in parliamentary
procedure can find themselves lost while trying to get guidance on the
everyday basics. The solution? Robert's Rules of Order Newly
Revised In Brief.
At 176 pages, this
handy pocket manual is roughly one-fourth the
number of pages of RONR, with abundant cross-references
for quick lookup in RONR if more information is needed.
This is the perfect supplement to RONR because it is entirely
consistent with the larger work! Just released in April 2004.
